Blue Asters

Blue Asters

Ethereal New England asters add long-lasting color to fall gardens.

While these asters are rather inconspicuous for most of the year, the 2- to 3-foot-tall plants come into their own around mid-September, producing billowy clouds of blooms. Their delicate blue petals encircle small yellow centers; although the centers soon fade to brown, the petals retain color for almost an entire month. Here, New England asters are paired with light pink mums for a colorful show.
