With plenty choices of home garden plants, you can choose which plant that the most you like. One example of home garden plants is aster. Asters are a family of flowers from the Asteraceae family, and they may also be called Michaelmas daisies. The family includes plants that range from 8 feet tall to only a few inches high. Asters are coveted for their long stems and profusion of flowers that come in many shades of pink, red, purple and even white. Perennial growing, asters prefer cool growing temperatures and moist conditions during their active growing season; April through September. You can plant an aster garden in spring, mid-February through March, either from seeds or from already established seedlings.
