Aster ericoides (Michaelmas daisy)
Fantastic tall growing aster with incredibly profuse flowering from late summer to late autumn. Clear white flowers are borne along the stems, which are up to 1m tall. In full flush it is hard to see the fine green foliage, and the stems arch over with the weight of the blooms. If you only grow one aster, ericoides has to be it! Full sun to part shade. 1mH x 0.5mW (in flower). Keep soil lightly moist until it finishes flowering for best results. Will tolerate dry soils but flowering and size is reduced.
