Over six feet tall, our late-blooming asters make a big visual statement with the last of the rudbeckia and echinacea in our fall garden. The bees love them. I always forget how much I love them.
I have no idea which asters these are, as I got them at a local plant exchange. We also grow a much more delicate foot-high Woods aster, an intensely blue crumpled aster, and a white aster that grows to about three feet called ‘Monte Cassino’.
If you have a garden and you want it to have some flowers in October, you need to plant some asters.
