September:A good subject for poor soils in sun or dappled shade is Aster macrophyllus. A victim of the reclassification of Aster by the powers that be he is now called Eurybia macrophylla. I should say called again Eurybia because he used to go under this name a few years back. Whatever the name he is doing well in sandy gravel growing out from under an apple tree in our garden.
