Aster ‘Coombe Fishacre’
at Digging Dog
We never tire of Aster’s cheerful daisy
faces and the profusion of colors and sizes that make
up this genus, from 6 ft. giants to tiny dwarf
alpines. Our Asters, large and small, are tried and true
performers in ordinary garden soil and full sun.
Generally late summer bloomers, they provide lots
of oomph when other perennials have petered out.
Aster ‘Coombe Fishacre’
With a billowy habit, a reliable floriferous nature and fine foliage that looks dapper all season long, ‘Coombe Fishacre’ is one of our favorite Asters. Its deep green leaves cover sweeping branches all the way down, while a slew of lilac flowers warmed by rosy brown centers roost above. Well after the blooms have faded, the seed heads add intriguing colors and shapes.
This first-class Aster never needs staking and can be planted in large drifts amid Miscanthus ‘Nippon’, Molinia ‘Bergfreund’ or Eupatorium ‘Gateway’ for glowing pink echoes.
Size: 2-1/2' high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!
Celebrated headliners of the late show!
Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
