Plantsman Robert Herman (2018 Mehlquist Award recipient) has developed three striking asters that are now available through The Plant Group, a wholesale perennial plant nursery in Franklin, CT. The plants are selections from Herman’s Colonial Series of New England Asters and come in saturated colors and white:
- “Boston” is red
- “Providence” is white
- “Hartford” is bluish-purple
CT Hort Society members interested in these new cultivars can ask their local retail garden center to carry them.
