Aster – Plant of the Week

Along with the plumes of grasses moving in the breeze and the changing of the autumn leaves, Asters are the harbingers of fall. Many bloom for a month or more, starting between mid September and October and continuing until frost. Not only do they add stunning color contrast to the changing leaves, bringing sky blues, purple, red, white, and pink with their glowing yellow centers but they are one of the best late season nectar sources for bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. Usually best planted en masse in groups of three or more, they can bring the season to an end in a joyous reminiscence of what had come before and of what will come yet again after the forthcoming winters passing. Long lived and easy to maintain, tall and small, we have an Aster that will fit your garden no matter what the size. Come in soon and enjoy a plant that can give back to nature as much so as it does to you and your garden before they’re all gone!

Our staff looks forward to seeing you and helping you with your selections and questions.
