Landscape Categories: Plants That Attract Butterflies
Comments: Has a number of landscape uses, but is unsurpassed as a plant with showy flowers for cutting. It is suited for border plantings, in cottage gardens and as a bedding plant. This mum-like plant flowers in late spring and summer. Among our most dependable perennials that return year after year if planted in a well drained soil in full sunlight. Plants will continue to multiply and form large colonies.
