Aster Bluebird -- Bluestone Perennials

Aster Bluebird provides sky-at-dusk blue flower clusters in profusion atop vase-shaped plants. Trouble-free foliage. End-of-season flowering for Northern gardens. Superb in warmer areas. Asters provide a nectar source for butterflies as well as a host plant for their larvae. Clusters of daisy-like flowers are produced at the tips of branching stems and create a stunning display against the dark green foliage. Pairs nicely with ornamental grasses.
