The daisy-shaped flowers of asters bloom from late summer into autumn and are available in shades of white, pink, lilac, purple and blue. They are native to American habitats such as meadows, prairies, thickets and swamps, and can be grown in a huge range of climates. The Plant Lover’s Guide to Asters by nursery owners Paul and Helen Picton highlights dozens of species and cultivars that are readily available to buy. The book features information on growth, care and design, along with suggested companion plants, and is illustrated with gorgeous colour photographs.
