at Digging Dog

Aster

Michaelmas Daisies

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 lateriflorus ‘Bleke Bet’ full sun  new plant

Purchased when we were touring British nurseries nearly 20 years ago and sadly forgotten about, this peerless Aster recently grabbed our attention. Dashing, deep purple-infused green foliage and dense well-branched twiggy stems lift an exuberant profusion of small, rose-centered white daisies, whose fine-hewn petals mature with soft pink shades. Strong, tall and upstanding, seldom offered ‘Bleke Bet’ delivers late, long-lasting flowers plus refined texture, while escorting companions such as Eryngium yuccifolium and Calamagrostis ‘Cheju-Do’.

Size: 4' 0"–4-1/2' high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“Excellent service from an excellent family owned company. The plants were shipped quickly in secure packaging & are doing great. Digging Dog is such a good business, they personally informed me that some of my order was not hardy for my area. I would highly recommend them.”
