Aster Little Carlow Ground Cover
Aster Little Carlow (Symphyotrichum Little Carlow) Michaelmas Daisy
An enchanting variety erupting in masses of cheerful yellow centred, violet blue daisy flower from August onwards providing valuable late season colur at a time of year when many perennials have faded. An easy to grow and tough plant that has recieved the RHS Award of Garden Merit for outstanding garden performance. Great for a splash of colour in beds and borders and perfectly fits the ‘cottage garden’ look.
Any good garden soil, they perform well in sun or partial shade.
As a rough guide planting Aster Little Carlow as ground cover – 4 plants per square metre is adequate with a little patience, 6 will give better coverage and 9-12 will make a weed supressing carpet very quickly.
