October Skies Aster

Item #:
Pot Size: full quart


Plant Description

Aromatic Aster is one of our all-time favorites. It just cannot be beat for long lasting fall color or ease of culture. Its dwarf variety, 'October Skies' is just as good but only half as high. So use this one when you want a low spreading dense mound instead of a medium height mound.
