Aster peduncularis

Aster peduncularis - suburban-gardenSeptember’s plant of the month is Aster peduncularis. This plant is mid-summer to autumn flowering and is really easy to grow. Although it prefers sunny conditions it will thrive just about anywhere including dry shade. It just doesn’t tolerate waterlogged soil. Aster peduncularis is also less prone to mildew than other varieties of aster.

I think the blue daisy flowers are beautiful and like all asters they remind me of the coming of autumn. What plants remind you that autumn is approaching?
