Master Gardener: M is for Michaelmas daisies — asters for fall color - The Daily World
Two favorites are Alma Potschke and Harrington’s Pink, each with clear pink single flowers.
The New York aster, Aster novi-bellgii, is native to eastern North America (Zones 1-24). It grows 4 feet wide and 3 feet tall with full clusters of bright blue-violet flowers.
Among the many choices of A. novi-belgii are Persian Rose (rose pink) and semi-double Professor Kippenburg (lavender blue). The robust Climax variety bears large sprays of single medium-blue blossoms on stems 6 feet tall.
Aster x frikartii Monch, native to the Himalayas, is planted in other parts of the perennial beds in my garden. It is upright 16 inches tall and wide with purple blue sprays of 2-inch-wide flowers. Their growth habit differs a bit from many of the above plants and are the finest, most useful and widely adapted of perennials.
In large borders or among shrubs, tall asters with their abundant color are invaluable as companion plantings. Hardy chrysanthemums and asters are complementary with their contrasting colors of peach, yellow and rusty reds. Clouds of coreopsis, switch grass and other grasses, black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia) and the burgundy seed pods of penstemons add to the color until frost arrives. Massing several plants of some of these varieties together creates a delicate balance.
At season’s end, a carefully planned palette transitions to blue, gold and burgundy and a colorful finale as winter approaches.

GREENFILE COLUMN: “Farmer-Florists” Fresh, Local Cut Flowers
This title is considered equal parts resource and inspiration for many of the growers who call themselves farmer-florists today.
In Canada, Melanie Harrington established Dahlia May Flower Farms on her family farm in Trenton, Ontario after reading Benzakein's book and deciding to take a workshop on Floret Farm in Washington. With over 60,000 Instagram followers (@dahliamayflowerfarm), Harrington has no problem marketing her sustainably grown, unique and often heirloom varieties from her roadside stand to local florists.
The beauty of flowers, of course, is that they sell themselves. "A lot of trends from the local-food movement are definitely spilling over", Melanie told Ben when he dropped by the farm where she now produces row upon row of colourful flowers for cutting. "A handful of commercial greenhouses in the Niagara area have also been switched over to marijuana production, which puts a crunch on supply of greenhouse space. There's a lot of trends coming together, but I'm just happy to focus on what I enjoy doing – being creative and growing beautiful flowers."
Located in Thornhill Ontario, Antonio Valente is a perfect example of how the farmer-florist trend is taking hold even in more urban environments. Valente was a substitute teacher with a passion for flowers when he started selling cut flowers from the beds he kept in his parent's backyard.
Also marketing himself through Instagram, where he posts rich photography from his garden as well as how-to videos at @antonionvalenteflowers, he recently took over his parent's half-acre property and still can't grow enough to meet demand. "I'm competing with larger growers who are producing acres of flowers, so I grow varieties that a florist wouldn't typically find from a wholesaler, heirlooms such as dahlias, Gerrie Hoek and Pam Howden, and foxglove Sutton's apricot. This allows me to differentiate myself and compete with the big guys."

Club members and others competed in a photo contest and floral design, including standalone designs and table settings. A teapot brimmed over with roses in the "Tea and White Gloves" display. A striking arrangement of red anthuriums and bright orange flowers sat in a large metal ring. A series of air plants attached to a large bamboo, more of Moore's handiwork, also attracted attention.A pachypodium Moore raised from seeds received a Christine Beattie Medal from judges "for vibrancy, prime condition and perfection of grooming."...

Ace Blooms wants to grow the flower market for men
How Ace Blooms works
Co-founders Shawn Harrington, Justin Schoen and Lyndsay Horgan launched Goquets in 2014, taking the company through the Iowa Startup Accelerator in 2015. Goquets still exists, but while going through the accelerator, the trio decided they wanted to target a more specific audience and for the the company to have more of a unique voice.
As a result, they spun off Ace Blooms earlier this year. The company labels itself as “The way men buy flowers online.”
“We wanted to fill the needs of the male market, and it’s something women like too,” Harrington said. “They want something to point their husbands and boyfriends to.”
When Harrington was living in upstate New York, he would visit the local florist for flowers for his mom and grandma. He would tell them how much he wanted to spend, and what occasion the flowers were for. When he would order flowers online, he didn’t get similar options, and was often disappointed in the results.
“It really burned me that one time I spent half an hour picking out bouquets, based on the pictures online. When I saw a picture of what was sent, it was completely different from what I ordered,” Harrington said. “I called to complain and the florist apologized and said they were limited in their stock, but if I told them my budget, they could have taken good care of me.”
When ordering from Ace Blooms, the site starts by asking who the flowers are for, letting you pick “girlfriend,” “wife” and “mother” with a single click. You also mark the occasion (“birthday,” “anniversary” and “congratulations” are all quick pick options), when you would like them delivered and how much you want to spend... (Silicon Prairie News)
