Aster novae-angliae 'Purple Dome'

Aster

Appearing as masses of solid royal purple from late summer into fall, these asters form wonderfully compact, rounded mounds. They are terrific accents for fall blooming grasses and the changing colors of the trees. Try cutting a few of the tall, flowering stems for a fresh bouquet--bring the outdoors in.

Aster Growing and Maintenance Tips

Asters perform best in rich, evenly moist soil and full sun. Give them lots of room to grow; good air circulation will help to prevent powdery mildew. Though this cultivar has a bushy, compact habit, it may still require staking. To promote dense growth that is less likely to flop, pinch plants back from late spring until July 4th.
