Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
The glorious large-flowered purple (rarely pink) aster that is the grandparent of many garden hybrids, New England aster is one of the top colormakers for a late fall meadow. When other flowers are gone, it is at its peak. Seed is costly since it is produced so late in the season, it is hard to collect in quantity.
