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.
