The glory of autumn, this aster is natives to much of eastern North America and is widely adapted and nearly pest-free. It's a dwarf cultivar that typically grows to be 18-24" tall and up to 3' wide, and sports purple 1 1/2" flowers with yellow centers. Butterflies love it.

So tinyThese plants just arrived and they are tinyl. I imagine they will probably survive and eventually be fine (since they're perennials), they might even flower a little this year. Another reviewer said they received a plant on the verge of flowering, so this is what i was expecting--a mature plant. These are seedlings. Next time I'll just order seeds and start them myself. Not impressed.

Shipped beautifully!I just opened the box. The plants were very well packaged but easy to remove without damaging them. I ordered four plants and they all arrived in excellent condition. They are strong, well-rooted and covered with healthy foliage. One already has purple blooms peaking out. There were just a few leaves at the bottom that needed to be removed from a couple of plants. That's to be expected. I will let them rest in my kitchen window for a day or two then plant them in front where they will get morning and early afternoon sun. I can't wait to see how they do. I know they will make lots of friends with my neighbors. Thank you!

beautiful astersPurchased these last spring. Were quick growing and were in full bloom by late summer. This spring I thought that they were dead! Then I cleaned off dead growth and they started growing bigger that the were last year. Now this summer they again are full of bloom . Cant wait till they bloom again. Oh also the butterflies love these and are drawn to them. Good purchase exactly what I wanted!
