Asters help define late summer, on the roadsides, in the meadows, or in our gardens. With daisy blooms of blue, purple, white or pink, in various heights, asters are butterfly magnets. Mostly for sun, there are several that are happy in part-shade, self-sowing and spreading at the edges of your pathways. Most of our asters are native or hybrids of native species. The butterflies like that.

For a low maintenance, very neat, little ground cover that can be planted in light shade or sun, dwarf mondo grass is an understated winner. It spreads slowly, so it won’t take over an area unless you want it to, and its dark green, grass-like foliage makes a beautiful carpet along walks and in gardens.

4” pot, reg. $4.99; 1 gal. pot, reg. $9.99

Sale 50% off



Groundcover, Perennial, Garden Edging – Liriope covers many bases in the garden. It performs well in both light shade and sun forming well coiffed mounds 12”-15” tall/wide with green or variegated foliage. Blue-purple flower spikes rise above the foliage during the summer.

Sale 50% off
