Freely branching sprays of brightly colored flowers decorate the autumn landscape throughout the Northeast. Asters add hardy grace to the back of the wild border and will naturalize on banks or in the meadow. Cut back slightly in early to mid June to induce an abundance of 1½– 2" rayed blooms from late August into October. Deer usually don’t eat them. Asters provide important late-season nectar to hungry pollinators. Plant 12–18" apart in light moist humusy soil in full sun with good air circulation. Zone 4 (2½" plug stock)
