Plant of the Month

August

Eurybia divaricata

 

Eurybia divaricata, previously know as Aster divaricatus, is one of the prettiest shade-loving plants around. It was a favoured plant of Gertrude Jekyll who used it in her own garden planted amongst bergenias.  A fantastic plant for adding a change of texture and colour in late summer. It produces masses of white daisy-like flowers with burnt yellow centres from June to September, above dark, almost black, wiry stems which create a delicate graceful habit. Grows to 60cm x 60cm.
