Aster 'Celeste' is a new Yoder selection with dark green, disease resistant foliage and a compact habit that is perfect for the front of the perennial border or mixed containers.
In late summer through fall, the plants are completely covered with eye catching lavender blue single flowers with an attractive yellow eye on mounded plants.
'Celeste' looks stunning when planted with fall blooming ornamental grasses!
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.
