Stokesia laevis 'Peachie's Pick' (Stoke's aster)

Stokesia laevis 'Peachie's Pick'

Stoke's aster

'Peachie's Pick' isn't peach or apricot, but it is a fantastic plant for pot culture and for the garden! Selected in Peachie Saxon's Mississippi garden, this Stokesia has the typical lavender blue flowers of the species, but it is very compact and has incredible flower power. And the flowers just keep coming, especially with periodic trims. This is our new favorite! 'Peachie's Pick' combines well with pinks and pale yellows.
