    Water:  Water thoroughly, but do not let it stay soggy

    Herb Description

    This herb plant is prized for both its long lasting blooms and great form. Upright grower on thick stems, it will maintain its form especially if you take the time to trim back during mid bloom season. We love these cool blue-lavender flowers for the punch they will add to your fall garden, usually dominated by yellows and oranges.

    Combine Aster 'Moench' in a garden with meadow grasses and natives. This plant is so much more mildew resistant than other asters, and is hardy to Zone 5. However, a very wet and soggy winter can be fatal, so make sure to cover the crowns with a layer of mulch.


    Use Them

    If you are like us, it's important to fill the fall garden with flowers so that we can keep the 'party going' before the first hard frost sets in - add Aster 'Moench' to your line up with the other fall bloomers like  Joe Pye Weed  and  Perovskia Russian Sage
