Abundant 1 ½” lavender blooms sport cheery yellow centers in fall blending beautifully with typical autumn hues. This drought-tolerant Aster gets its name from the pleasant balsam-like aroma emitted when the foliage is crushed. Native to the Midwest and Eastern U.S.
Asters provide a nectar source for butterflies as well as a host plant for their larvae. Clusters of daisy-like flowers are produced at the tips of branching stems and create a stunning display against the dark green foliage. Pairs nicely with ornamental grasses.
Asters are invaluable in the hardy border, adding superb color in the autumn. Very durable and long lived. Even heavy, wet soils will suit them. Richer soils will generally yield taller plants. Asters support bees and butterflies right up until season's end.
Pinch back and divide like mums for best display. General rule of thumb is to pinch until 4th of July and not after. Pinching yields better branching and more flowers. Can be divided every 2-3 years in spring. Avoid wet overwintering conditions. Remove spent flowers to prevent reseeding.
