Description

Billowing masses of light blue daisies accented with dark yellow centers help close out the growing season. This native aster cultivar grows equally well in partial shade or full sun conditions; it's not picky about soils. Butterflies, moths, and hummingbirds all delight in one of the last nectar treats of the season.
