Aster Frikartii



This Aster has been our plant of the week before, in months of July through October. As one of the best garden perennials for Okanagan growing with one of the longest blooming periods, it comes highly recommended. This Aster definitely turns on a fabulous show in the fall with its bluish-mauve flowers and mounding form. Gorgeous when combined with Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’.
