New York Aster
”. Robust, upright, clump-forming plants produce sprays of light purple blue to pink daisy blooms in autumn. A favorite of butterflies, bees and other pollinators. Native to eastern North America.
Normal moisture is best, but asters are drought tolerant once established. However, if plants are kept too dry, they may develop powdery mildew on their leaves. Tolerant of coastal conditions. Can be grown under black walnut trees. Plants may be cut back by half in late June to encourage compact growth and more flowers.
