    Product Description

    Asters have always been lovely for late summer/early fall color, but modern breeding has turned it into an absolute dream for easy growing. Our Bluebird Aster has no problem with drought, and even deer and rabbits leave it alone. Traditional asters tend to have issues with mildew and splitting, but this variety has a great resistance to both. Put it in a planter and it'll fill it out with a lovely, even mound that doesn't require any deadheading or staking and covers itself with hundreds of daisylike blooms. It grows 3-4' tall and makes a lovely accent to some of our more compact asters or other shorter perennials. Aster laevis 'Bluebird'
