Aster dumosus 'Professor Kippenberg'

Common Name: New York Aster, Michaelmas Daisy

Densely packed clusters of bright lavender-blue, semi-double flowers provide outstanding color in the garden from late summer into fall. Since this selection has a dwarf, compact habit, it will not require staking.

Asters are excellent cut flowers and attract butterflies. They make a terrific accent to fall blooming grasses and the changing colors of the trees. They are native to North America and are generally very easy to grow.
