A border of Asters is an unforgettable spectacle in the fall. Combine them with the graceful silky blossoms of Japanese Anemones, the lavender-purple airy bouquets of Tall Verbena, and architectural ornamental grasses such as the lovely Maiden Grass (Miscanthus sinensis), and you will enjoy a delightful color show which will enlighten your garden for weeks, from mid-summer until late winter.

Low maintenance and fairly easy to replicate, most plants have won prestigious awards and will take your breath away. Deer and rabbit resistant, they make excellent cut flowers too. Enjoy!
