Symphyotrichum novae-angliae - New England Aster
In our opinion this is one of if not the prettiest native Aster. This puts on a spectacular show in the fall of the year with various shades of purple flowers and a yellow center on top of a 3-5 ft. stem. Give it at least a half day of sun or more and if you have an area that stays a little moist that would be perfect. Mix this with some Cardinal Flower and Golden Rod and have a fantastic show in the Fall. One of our best sellers and great for Butterflies.
