Plant du jour…

Beth Chatto calls it, “absolutely the best Michaelmas daisy for long display and sheer beauty” and I can’t help but agree.

Aster frikartii ‘Wunder von Stäfa’ is a beautiful, late flowering Aster reaching approximately 0.5-1m in height. It’s bluey, purple flowers ring in the end of the summer.

Plant it now for end of season perfection!
