Consumer’s love color and our Matsumoto Asters offer a veritable rainbow of color options in a bright, enthusiastic parade of hues. We’ve been growing Matsumotos for more than a decade, and frankly, I love this crop because we get to enjoy the color a bit, before they leave the farm.

Matsumotos begin as a seed, and then grow into a plug, which we then plant directly in the soil. They grow tall and straight in the bright Pacific sun, creating dense rows of flowers which we cover with hoop houses to keep warm and protect from the elements.

When it’s time to pick them, it almost looks like our team members are wading into a chest deep pool of blooms. Matsumotos are just as photogenic in the field as they are in a bouquet or in a consumer bunch.
