for astral encounters
From Peleides’ showers
till fall’s last glow.
– Shobha Vanchiswar
If you have not as yet embraced asters then get going already! Robust, reliable natives that make fall shine. Low maintenance too. If I can remember, I cut back the plants by a third in July so the plants get bushy rather than leggy. Butterflies and bees of all kinds are drawn to them in droves. Every American garden ought to have asters.
The Aster is rightfully assigned as the flower for September. But oh! How it lights up October!
Note: I am participating in the Beaux shows in Dobbs Ferry, NY this week and in White Plains, NY next week. Hope you can stop by!
