Fun Facts You could hardly be blamed for wanting to say "cotton-easter" based on the spelling of this plant's name, but it is actually pronounced "Cot-oh-KNEE-aster."

Maintenance Notes
This trouble-free plant requires almost nothing from its owner. It cannot tolerate being stepped on, so should be planted away from foot traffic. Pay attention to spacing so that it does not grow into lawns or walkways as it matures. If you need to trim it, do so after blooming.
