Aster pyrenaeus ‘Lutetia’ is an easy to grow ‘Michaelmas Daisy’ which has graceful wiry stems which are covered in pale lilac blue daisies for many, many weeks in late summer and autumn. This is a low-growing variety that is ideal for use at the front of the border or along the edge of a path. It thrives in any well drained and sunny position. Clumps benefit from regular division to keep them healthy and vigorous. Aster pyrenaeus ‘Lutetia’ is great for adding late season colour to the front of the herbaceous border.
There is little doubt that the climate is changing,for whatever reason, and that seasons are not as distinct. In Britain the autumn season is lengthening and often there is relatively frost free weather up until December. The majority of gardens in Britain look at their finest in the spring and early summer, leaving many gardens looking relatively lacklustre after June has passed. The use of these late summer flowering perennials in the garden should renew inspiration in the months of the year when the shadows are lengthening.
