Details
8-10" tall x 15-18" 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.
