Aster novae-angliae 'Purple Dome'
A striking and compact introduction from the Mt. Cuba Center. Very mildew resistant. Deep purple flowers appear in September.
Fall-blooming favorite, with daisy-like flowers in varied colors. Selected mildew-resistant varieties. Moisture and good drainage will also help control mildew. Note that a few of the Asters have the nice long new genus name of Symphyotrichum. Nothing is easy, is it? We’ll list them under Aster for a couple of years until the dust settles.
