It makes a dramatic statement in your late summer garden with beautiful lavender-blue blooms, tinged with pink, for a 6 week period.
English Countryside Aster plants form robust clumps and produce a profusion of these daisy-like flowers. It attracts butterflies and is lovely in bouquets.
To increase bloom time, deadhead after the first initial flowering. English Countryside Aster will do best in a full sun area with morning shade and well-drained soil.
It should not stay wet while in dormancy.
