If you are looking for easy-care non-stop color, Aster x frikartii 'Monch' (Frikart's Aster) is a top choice for gardens and meadow plantings. Its abundant 2 ½" flowers are a pollinator favorite, attracting butterflies, birds, and bees. This hybrid is easy to grow, deer and rabbit resistant, and mildew-resistant. Asters are happy in average, well-drained soil in a sunny location with consistent water. Once established, they are drought-tolerant, vigorous growers that flower reliably year after year. Every few years, they should be divided to stimulate more flowering. As other perennial summer flowers fade, Asters will continue to bloom, providing much needed food for our pollinators and brightening flower beds with fresh blossoms. Pair with Yarrow, Echinacea (Coneflower), Monarda (Bee Balm), Solidago (Goldenrod), and Ornamental Grasses where their soft colors harmonize.
