no idea but they are pretty !
Chuckle, I literally was just texting a friend to offer her two stokesias! I was thinning mine out.
I love them because it's an unusual blue... Like a sky blue or the blue of roadside chicory (? cornflowers?).
Wow that color is beautiful. I never heard of a Stokes Aster. I love the color of chicory.
@justin249 .... So are you asking how to grow stokesia?
something tells me that is not his plant !
Mart, mine are that same color but are a little floppy. They need full sun and the most i have on my property is 1/2 day sun. Still, they are pretty and very easy to grow.
They are beautiful
Those have been surprisingly easy to grow. I divided an older single plant last spring and now have multiple plants. I was surprised since I lost a more common variety when I attempted to divide and move it. Mine bloom quite late for fall blooms and do well in my yard that lives with significant shade. In my experience they have been a great plant for my temperate climate.
Do yours flop @Jewell ?
@Cayuga Morning this variety is very lush and upright with prolific number of blooms. I’d say the stems are quite thick and robust. The old fashioned variety I grew before bloomed earlier, were more “wild” looking. In my back yard the Stokes bloom quite late. Am hoping in my drier, sunnier front yard they may bloom earlier so that all of the blooms all fully open before the weather changes.
Good to know
