Aster ericoides ‘First Snow’ is the second Aster introduction from Intrinsic Perennial Gardens, Inc.
‘First Snow’ has a unique bushy habit growing around 24-inches tall and spreading even wider. Plants start blooming in late September and continue into October with hundreds of tiny white flowers that cover the plant. The plants have fine needle like foliage on arching stems.
According to Intrinsic Perennial Gardens, ’First Snow’ is easy to grow and hardy plants prefer a moist to well drained soil in full sun and are very drought tolerant. This new Aster works nicely in combination with other fall bloomers and grasses like Pennisetum ‘Piglet’ PP#19,074.
