PERENNIAL: Symphyotrichum novae-angliae (New England Aster)

Daisy-like asters bloom profusely late summer to early fall. Native to more northern parts of the Mid-Atlantic Region and mountains of Virginia, in NoVA they may have spread from cultivation where they are often used in wild gardens and roadside plantings. For smaller gardens, the dwarf cultivar ‘Purple Dome’ has a low, bushy habit that does not require staking and produces abundant bright, royal purple flowers.
