Symphyotrichum novae-angliae -  New England Aster

 

In our opinion this is one of if not the prettiest native Aster. This puts on a spectacular show in the fall of the year with various shades of purple flowers and a yellow center on top of a   3-5 ft. stem. Give it at least a half day of sun or more and if you have an area that stays a little moist that would be perfect. Mix this with some Cardinal Flower and Golden Rod and have a fantastic show in the Fall. One of our best sellers and great for Butterflies.

Thermopsis villosa   -  Aaron’s Rod, Carolina Bush Pea

A very beautiful and unique looking plant. The bloom will remind you of a Lupine and the     foliage is similar to a Baptisia but much larger. Blooms in the late spring to early summer with yellow flowers atop 3-5 foot stems. Each plant will form into a large clump and spread by underground runners and by seed, so give it plenty of room. Will grow in varied conditions but dry to average soil and at least a half day of sun or more it will perform at its best. In the late summer and fall it has a seed pod that also is attractive.

Xerophyllum asphodeloides   -   Turkey’s Beard 

Evergreen grass like basal foliage with a tall stem reaching 4-5 ft tall with a ball of white flowers on top. This plant requires acid soil with a pH of 4.5, and very dry. Will grow in sun or shade. Be patient with this one, after you plant in the correct spot it will just kind of sit there for 2 or 3 years then it will take off. It is well worth the wait as it is a beautiful plant.
