Aster ‘Wonder of Staffa’

Nonstop Lavender-Blue Blooms for Months one of the finest plants introduced in the past 50 years. Blooms from early summer till frost. You will wonder how you ever got along without this long-blooming, easy-care plant. Blue flowers are always welcome in the garden and this Aster will give you more radiant lavender-blue than you ever though possible.From early summer till fall frost, these many-branched plants bear masses of 2-inch blooms, each boasting a dense circlet of narrow petals surrounding a cheery greenish-yellow center. Superb for cutting, they are also unbelievably colorful in a mass garden display.

The plants reach just 18 to 20 inches high, so you need never worry about staking them. And if you want even more blooms, pinch the branches back in spring and again a month later. Long-lived and trouble-free, this perennial asks only full sun to part shade in ordinary, reasonable well-drained soil. Attracts butterflies too.

Zones 5-9.
