Aster 'Wood's Light Blue'
‘Woods Light Blue’ has densely packed clusters of light blue flowers on short stalks. This Aster has a compact habit and a resistance to mildew and rust. Flowers in light blue shades appear between August 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.
