Description

This aster blooms in late summer-early fall with masses of fine-petaled blue flowers. It can reach a height of 4 feet with a similar spread, but should be clipped back by a fourth in early summer. This creates a denser, more compact plant with more flowers. It should be planted in full sun and well-drained soil. Once established, it is both heat and drought tolerant.
