A Quick Guide to Asters
Few of our native plants shine in September and October like asters do.
At Herring Run Nursery we are big fans of asters: they add fantastic color to the Fall garden, provide crucial late-season nectar to pollinators (including the migrating Monarch butterfly), and are important host plants for all sorts of important caterpillars.
We rounded up some great photographs from Flickr to make it easier for you to figure out which of these are right for your garden. We should have these and more are our native plant sale on Saturday!
