|I went out on the morning of May 05, 2011 and found buds on my Stokes Asters. I was really excited! The wait was over at last|

Stokes Aster and Shasta Daisies
What a desolate place would be a world with out a flower! It would be a face with out a smile, a feast with out a welcome. Are not flowers the stars of the earth, and are not our stars the flowers of the hevens. A.J. Balfour
I bought my Stokes Aster in 2009. I was in Shevesport with my daughter Charlotte. I was beginning to think it would never bloom. Well worth the wait. The Stokes Aster is a native flower of Georgia and south eastern part of Carolina. I will be planting more of the Stokes Asters. The other type Asters that I have planted were bad to have white mildew. If the plant is not pretty without blooms, I do not keep it. That is another plus for my roses, they are green here, even in winter. Roses can have brown spots and turn yellow. Carrel sprays them to prevent this.
