Details
12-24" tall x 12-18" wide (cutting propagated). This outstanding compact cultivar of the New England Aster is notable for its symmetrical mounding habit and luscious deep lavender-purple flowers. Easy to grow in any decent soil and not bothered by mildew, I like to plant it with Solidago 'Golden Fleece' and Agastache cana for a beautiful flowering grouping in early fall. Divide in spring every 3rd year to keep it vigorous.

      This plant looks great for weeks without special attention. It has an attractive, balanced shape and the purple flowers add vibrant color to my garden. The colors really stand out against my drab bark mulch.

        Comments about High Country Gardens Aster novae-angliae Purple Dome:

        This adds bright color in the fall. It is a favorite of butterflies and bees. A last meal before winter setting in. I am looking for the bright pink aster I have seen. Hope that is available sometime. My area is a zone 4. Though the maps say zone 5, with the cold, dry winds we get in the summer and spring I have found that plants that are zone 5 can't take it.

          I planted these beauties in spring and by late summer they were full grown plants that bloomed and stayed in bloom until frost!

            I use the asters as fall color in my yard.
            The purple color is a wonderful, I can't think of anything that is not great about this plant.
