Cape Cod asters spilling on to the front lawn. White flowers are one of my biggest weaknesses. By and large they’re divas, weaker, and more demanding than their more colorful counter parts. But, they are lovely. Or maybe, I’m just a sucker for high-maintenance beauties. 😉

As white flowers go, Cape Cod is pretty carefree they show up every autumn, gracing the garden with their delicate charms. After the first hard frost, I cut them back. Next spring they’ll slowly emerge as modest low growing green clumps that are all but invisible in the border until fall.
