Blue Aster provides, to both home and professional gardeners, a diverse palette of native plants sold in 4" and 1/2 gallon pots. Most plants are grown at the nursery from seed that is responsibly collected from a variety of locations here in Maine. A small portion of plants are grown from plugs started at Native Plant Trust's Nasami Farm.
Native plants matter because they evolved alongside the insects, birds and other creatures that are also native to Maine. These creatures depend on native plants for habitat, food for their young and to provide nourishment before our long cold winter sets in.
Native plants are adapted to our soils and climate. There are plants for moist shady conditions, for sandy gravelly sites, for dry shade and moist sunny locations. Native plants don't require fertilizers and large amounts of compost to be beautiful. They just naturally feel at home!
