Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
The "Zig Zag" Aster is named after the curious twist in its leaves, but the real news here is the flowers. They're lovely pastel lavender with stunning bright yellow centers, and they're not tiny. The flowers here are much like other favorites--the showy, perennial wild asters like the much-loved "New England Aster", and the "New York Aster," but while those two are often tall, rangy plants, this one is only 1 to 3 ft, making it perfect for your wild garden. Great color for late season meadows.
