Narrowleaf Silky Golden Aster

Pityopsis graminifolia

Height: 2-3 feet
Light: Sun to part shade
Soil Type: Prefers dry, sandy soil (will rot if kept too wet)
Bloom Time: Mid spring – mid fall
Flower Color: Bright yellow
Foliage: Grown for silver/gray foliage, evergreen, herbaceous

Soft, yellow, daisy-like flowers atop silvery-haired leaves and stems create an outstanding visual effect in a fall garden bed, especially when other perennials are played against the silvery-white foliage color. Tough and evergreen.

Cut back old foliage in spring as the new growth emerges. The narrowleaf silky golden aster attracts butterflies.
