Gorgeous perennial-- almost a shrub --big!
from Taos NM
Bees LOVE! Beautiful habit - big and draping. Great long-lasting cut branches for dramatic arrangements. I get lots of compliments. Only caution is that it's much bigger that I expected. Have to move some. Definitely 3 feet high and wide. But a group of three is beautiful, dramatic and romantic in thecright space.

About Me Master Gardener
This grew quickly and well. Very eye catching towards the back of the garden and blooms the first year. Bloom time is great too as many other things are finished by later in the fall.

Performance is super
from Centennial, CO
I really enjoy this aster which frames my front yard fence. I live in Centennial, CO and it has done very well these last three years. I wish I could order at least one more plant but you are out of stock. Come September, i have hundreds of honey bees "eating" all day long so I'm sure these asters are supporting a neighbors honey business.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
