Chrysanthemum, aster, cyclamen and Cotinus: agreements flamboyant
A big pot of chrysanthemums to Japan’s small coppery orange flowers produced an explosion of color. The show is enhanced by the Smoke tree (Cotinus coggygria ‘Grace’) at the beautiful purple foliage tinged with orange in the fall. In the manner of a painter, the gardener has added a mini cyclamen flowers scarlet and purple aster to balance the picture.
Flowering: August to October for the fall aster, from September to November for chrysanthemums and from September to March for the cyclamen.
Our advice: protect asters by a veil of winter or return to a local frost when temperatures are negative.
