This is famous blue one among the dwarf asters. With bright daisy-like flowers and neat short growth, you can depend on them for stunning flowers like clockwork when fall rolls around. Plants are just 8 to 12 inches tall.

The Dwarf Asters The famous dwarf aster group is one of the very best ways you can assure some fall bloom for your meadow or garden. Ive grown them all, and they are simple to handle, and hardy as oaks. They stay short and spread rapidly. In fact, if you want to do the work, after about two years, you can dig up two or three plants, and divide them into twenty...and then replant yourself a huge patch or yards of edging. Before bloom, they're neat low green tufts, so they're great plants all season long.

The dwarf Aster dumosis hybrids resulted from a cross between wild Aster nova novi-belgii, the much taller New York Aster, with another wild aster from the Pacific northwest.

    Comments about American Meadows Aster Wood's Blue:

    I have begun wildflowers and butterfly garden. I have not previously grown asters. These were planted in the spring and the plants I ordered are thriving. They are full of unopened bloom, so I am anxiously awaiting a beautiful late summer with asters. Thank you

      Comments about American Meadows Aster Wood's Blue:

      Planted with agastache and provided a very compatible color and dense base to prevent toppling. Gradual but reliable bloom build-up to a 2 week peak. Continuing to bloom as early flowers wane. Great and compatible color with oranges and yellows.

              Massed them between larger shrubs and let them go. They've filled the space with blue flowers with little care.

                    Did not expect them to spread so rapidly. Would have selected a different planting location . Can certainly move/divide them since they appear very healthy.

                    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
