Aster oblongifolius 'October Skies'
This Aster is highly tolerant of drouhgt and poor soils. It is a good ground cover with flowers of a very clear, violet-blue that bloom between September and October.
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.
