Vivid, double, lipstick-pink flowers flushed cerise, are held on upright, robust stems with narrow mid green leaves. This striking 'New England American Aster' really packs a punch in a late summer to autumn border, delivering long-lasting sackfuls of colour. 

For a striking combination, mix it with Perovskia and Gaura 'Rosy Shimmers'.  It also looks particularly good with dark foliage or flowered ornamental grasses, such as Molinia caerulea subsp. caerulea 'Heidebraut'. Easy to grow, it performs best in a nutritionally rich, moist soil in sun or partial shade
