Pot Size: full quart


Plant Description

Found in open woods, savannas, and sandhills of the southeast, this aster is a good one for full sun or light shade in dryish well-drained soil. Forming a 3 foot rounded clump, Tennessee Aster has shiny dark green narrow leaves and is covered with bright lavender-blue, 1 1/2 inch flower heads in late summer and early fall. The ornamental aspect of the leaves and the tighter clumping habit of this aster (especially if pruned once in early summer) make it useful in close quarters.
