Asters make a colorful addition to the fall garden.

Asters love full sun and bloom from late summer into fall. Pictured is the cultivar Aster frikartii ‘Wunder von Stäfa’. This herbaceous perennial features dark leaves and daisy-like flowers that are violet with yellow centers. Consider using asters in containers or as border plantings; they can reach 28 inches tall. They also attract butterflies to your garden.
