Description:

A special discovery made by Ryan Gainey in the garden of Rachel Jackson, this Aster is the last to bloom in late-fall. The compact, densely-branched plants are then covered by myriad, small, lavender Daisy flowers. It continues to provide an astonishingly colorful display even after autumn’s first light frosts.
