Description

Height x Spread: 50cm x 50cm 

Beautiful large lilac daisy flowers are produced in profusion on this Aster in late summer.

It combines beautifully with yellows, definitely try it with Rudbeckia, deep purples and whites.  A great choice for the border, it also looks great mixed with grasses.  A further asset is that it is mildew resistant.  Bees and butterflies love landing on the flowers as there is plenty of pollen and nectar for them.  Full sun and a free draining soil are the best conditions to grow this plant.
