In an illustrated lecture, you’ll learn the results of a comparative study of 56 species and cultivars of native asters and their performance in the mid-Atlantic region. Variations in height, color, bloom period, cultural preferences, disease and insect resistance, and hardiness provide ample opportunity for you to make selections for your particular site and design requirements. Several of the best selections from this study will be available at the Plant Sale. Refreshments served.
