The Purple Dome New England Aster is a valuable dwarf form of a perennial that is usually tall and that needs staking. It naturally grows into a dense mound of stiff, rough leaves, topped from late summer through fall with bright purple ‘daisy’ flowers with bold yellow centers, that makes a bright and long-lasting display. A fabulous and easy way to bring color into fall, it looks amazing among the red and gold leaves of your trees. A native plant attracting butterflies and bees, it can be grown among shrubs or flowers, along streams, edging woodlands, or in pots.

  • Compact mound of bright purple flowers with yellow centers
  • Blooms from late summer through fall
  • Fantastic addition to your fall garden
  • Native plant adaptable to many areas
  • Grows in both wet and dry soils

Full sun is best for the Purple Dome New England Aster, which will grow in any soil, from wet ground to dry, sandy areas. This tough native plant is hardy and reliable, growing patiently through summer and then doing its thing when fall arrives. Usually free of serious diseases and pests, it isn’t bothered by deer, and tolerates moderate drought as well as flooded soil. Pinch the tips of the stems in May and again in late June, to get the bushiest plant with the most blooms.
