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.
Pretty pink 1-½ in. flowers gather in festive clusters as they top sturdy stems clad in toothed linear foliage. Several layers of frilly petals swirl around the bright yellow eyes, delivering spirited color to the front lines of a
perennial border, while Gaura ‘Pink Cloud’ and the darkly red Angelica gigas take up the rear.
Blooms August–early October.
Size: 18"–2' high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 4.
Aster ‘Cassie’ (P-1085)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
