Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
This pure white (with yellow center) aster can be stunning in late summer and fall when it opens its clusters of bright flowers atop tall stems in dark woods. This is a great plant for a forest woodline, or any woodland clearing. Leaves are attractive and lance-shaped.

        Comments about American Meadows Flat Top Aster Seeds:

        I planted these along our back fence underneath some large trees with occasional sunlight. i was hoping to create a barrier between our dogs and the dogs of the house that backs up to our yard.
        Nothing ever grew. That's about all there is to it - extremely disappointing.
