Good Combo on a Frosty Morning

Aster novi-belgii 'Porzallan' with Cotinus 'Grace'

Dan Hinkley wrote in the 2004 Heronswood catalogue that Aster novi-belgii 'Porzallan' was his "personal favorite [aster] as this would have any bearing on your selection," which of course it did. I've had mine for six years and it has matured into a handsome three-foot-tall pant with whitish-lavender flowers which look lovely with the lightly frosted leaves of Cotinus 'Grace.'


  1. Frosty morning???!!!??? I'm definitely not ready!

  2. Tim,
    Be careful. It is coming to a theater near you!
