Aster laevis ‘Climax’
at Digging Dog

Aster

Michaelmas Daisies

We never tire of Aster’s cheerful daisy faces and the profusion of colors and sizes that make up this genus, from 6 ft. giants to tiny dwarf alpines. Our Asters, large and small, are tried and true performers in ordinary garden soil and full sun. Generally late summer bloomers, they provide lots of oomph when other perennials have petered out.

Unfurling later than most Asters, droves of spectacular soft blue-mauve flowers embroidered with yellow eyes signal autumn's arrival on beefy upright stalks. This erect strong growing perennial dons dense dark green leaves that maintain their winsome mildew-free appeal ‘till the caramel-colored seed heads begin to fade. A compelling presence for the mixed border, ‘Climax’ complements other fall bloomers such as Helianthus ‘Dakota Queen’ and Persicaria ‘Fat Domino’.

Blooms mid-September–October

Size: 2-1/2'–5' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
