Aster ‘Sapphire’ does require full sun, but can take some afternoon shade. Place in a moderate soil range with good drainage that does not become extremely dry during the summer.


Aster ‘Sapphire’ makes an excellent container plant or in front of the garden feature and looks great with ornamental grasses.


‘Sapphire’ is attractive to bees, butterflies and birds and looks beautiful all season long. PPAF


Use this plant in borders, mass plantings, in perennial gardens and butterfly gardens.


Pinching back the stem tips in late spring and early summer will produce denser growth and heavier blooming. This plant may be divided every few years in the spring.
