|This Aster, a northeastern native, never has a mildew problem. It has unusual needle-like foliage that stays neat and low. Small flowers have yellow centers. Needs full sun to be at its best. Asters are fall blooming favorites; they have daisy-like flowers and come in a variety of colors. We have selected mildew-resistant varieties but moisture and good drainage will also help control mildew.
