Description / 'Peachie's Pick' Stokes Aster

'Peachie's Pick' Stokes Aster explodes into rich blue color that fills the midsummer garden and patio containers. Just a foot high and slightly wider, this neat dwarf blooms during the dog days of July and August, when the color is drained out of many plants.

'Peachie's Pick' is a strong cornflower-blue, with 2- to 3-inch daisies arising over modest plants just 8 to 12 inches tall and 12 to 20 inches wide. Perfect in front of daylilies of all colors, it is also a stylish edging for walkways, perennial borders, or the sunny garden path. Set it into containers and enjoy the rich blue hues up close on the patio.

Named for the Mississippi plantswoman who discovered and grew it, Peachie Saxon, 'Peachie's Pick' is a hardy performer in just about any hot, humid climate and less extreme temperatures all the way north through zone 5. Unlike some Stokes Asters, 'Peachie's Pick' won't flop or droop; these cheery daisies stay steady, lifted toward the sun.

Stokes Aster is a native American plant, so it's largely tolerant of pests and diseases. Capable of growing in just about any garden soil, it thrives in full sun to part shade and well-drained soil. Space plants about 10 inches apart for good coverage.

Review by Dale casual gardender.
This plant lived up to it's billing. It started blooming in June and has been going strong with occasional deadheading (now 9/19). It stays in a nice compact mound
