Aster ‘Bridal Veil’
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.

Kudos to Dr. Jim Ault at the Chicago Botanic Garden for this recently introduced distinctive Aster ‘Snow Flurry’ descendant. Fine textured close-knit branches with small linear green leaves grow upward, then somewhat horizontally before assuming a unique weeping aspect during the summer, which is heightened by a phenomenal profusion of ½ in. wide pure white flowers. The long-lasting floral train nearly veils the entire plant and lays claim to its name, while ‘Bridal Veil’s stoic habit handles drought, salt spray and mildew.

Blooms mid-September–early October

Size: 2' 0" high x 4-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.
