NATIVE INFO

Native Range

White Doll's Daisy is found from the Upper Midwest and the Plains States south to Texas

Interesting Facts

 

Butterflies and other insects have their skeleton on the outside of their body. This protective shell is called an exoskeleton and it conserves water in the insect body while helping to keep it safe from injury.

 

GROWING TIPS

 

Although it will certainly tolerate periods of drought, Boltonia prefers average to moist soil and will withstand periodic wet feet. Full sun is essential for maintaining an upright stature. Cut back in early to mid-summer to achieve a less lanky habit.
