The New England Aster’s profuse bloom of beautiful, purple, daisy-like flowers with a stout, leafy habit will provide both color and contrast to garden during fall. Vibrant color persists from late summer into the fall. These beauties will attract butterflies and make excellent cut flowers. They grow best in moist areas with plenty of sunlight. Plant in groups or use for massing.
