The Aster Honeysong Purple, 'Stokesia laevis', has leathery, strap-like leaves that form a clump at the base with huge true royal purple daisy-like flowers with a hint of red at the end of the stem. The powdery blue flowers bloom from July until frost and have a plant height of 14” and a plant spread of 18-24”.

This aster is an exciting introduction from the late hosta guru, Alex Summers and his son, Alan, of the former Carroll Gardens. Stokesia 'Honeysong Purple' boasts large, vivid, dark purple flowers with a contrasting reddish-pink center on a nice, compact grower. This is truly one of the most stunning colored stokesia on the market!

‘Honeysong Purple’ Aster will do best in well drained soil, and a full sun area with morning shade; should not stay wet while in dormancy. This aster is wonderful for summer color in beds, borders or containers, and it makes a beautiful vase of lovely cut flowers. Deadhead after the first initial flowering in order to increase bloom time.
