Aster macrophyllus ‘Twilight’
at Digging Dog


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.

A “real winner” is how the late celebrated plantsman and author Christopher Lloyd described this form of our versatile eastern North American native Aster. Slow spreading rhizomes plus toothed heart-shaped leaves compile an attractive green basal rosette, bearing upright red-imbued stalks and broad, openly branched flat-topped clusters of rich lavender blue daisies with yellow centers that age to rose. Floriferous, mildew-free and adaptable, ‘Twilight’ can tolerate dry shady niches and serve as an easy-care ground cover at a woodland’s edge or be added to cottage gardens and perennial borders.

Size: 2-1/2'–3' 0" high x 18"–2' 0" wide. Zone 3/4.

Customer Comment:

“I placed a large order & am very pleased with the experience. I chose Digging Dog because they had cultivars that I couldn't find elsewhere & were grown neonic-free. All the plants I received were strong & well-rooted. I will happily order from them again.”
