Stokes’ Aster is a North American native wildflower that is a wonderful addition to the sunny border. This wonderfully upright selection produces very large, shaggy, periwinkle blue flowers over a long period which are held high on strong stems. It forms a low mound of grass-green foliage, remaining evergreen in mild winter areas. Tolerant of hot, humid summer regions. Great for cutting, and also attractive to butterflies. This needs good drainage, particularly in the winter, so a raised bed might suit it well. Also a good candidate for mixed containers. Remove faded flowers to encourage more buds to form.
