More Information About Marshallia
The genus Marshallia has just 10 species and is a fascinating little plant native to southern and central US. Marshallia is in the daisy family (Asteraceae) and produces small 1"-2" composite flower clusters that open from the outside in, displaying frilly petals on each floret. The charming white, purple or pink flower clusters of marshallia are spherical in shape and bloom in late spring and into early summer.
In the wild, marshallia species grow in bogs and wetlands, or in drier open forests and along roadsides. Its informal habit makes marshallia great for meadow or cottage gardens. Try combining marshallia with other southern US natives such as Clematis pitcheri, and Spigelia marilanda for an all-American red (spigelia), white (marshallia), and blue (clematis) garden.
