Not just the typical Michaelmas Daisy, we offer others with more interest. Many of the less common species are more or less mildew free and a better, moister soil will help with all species. A very varied family but recent changes to naming will soon see some moved to other families (when I believe them!).
An easy, reliable and tough hybrid (A. novae-angliae x A. ericoides) with arching stems carrying large sprays of thousands of small pink flowers in late summer and autumn. Best cascading down a slope or over a wall. 50cm. Sun.
Stunning clear white flowers with yellow centres in autumn on wand-like stems to 45cm. Unusual foliage for an Aster. Makes a spreading patch but doesn't take over! Average soil in sun or part shade. PBR
An unusual Aster with its shiny green leaves, black stems and masses of small white flowers with yellow centres that rapidly turn pink - and it likes shade! Low clumps to 60cm, flowers midsummer. Any reasonable soil in shade or part shade.
Superficially similar to A. divaricatus in flower. Loose clumps of large green leaves and branched stems to 50cm. Largish white flowers in summer, earlier than A. divaricatus. Shade or part shade, average soil.
