Overview

The magnificent blooms of New England Aster highlight the late season landscape with rich colors ranging from deep violet to lavender-pink, with yellow-orange centers. Large and showy this aster can grow up to six feet high. Like most asters it blooms late in the season and provides a critical fall nectar source for pollinators, especially Monarchs as they stock up for their fall migration to Mexico.
