Aster novae-angliae ‘Purple Dome’

Description

The 18″ stems of fuzzy, narrow, green leaves are topped in early fall with vivid, 1.5″ wide, shocking purple daisies…so thick you can’t see the foliage. Aster ‘Purple Dome’ will eventually spread to 3′. Planted en masse, the effect is indescribable! – Plant Delights

Grows in sun to filtered shade and performs best in moist, well-drained soil, though it is tolerant of short dry periods.
