16-18" tall x 18-24" wide. Aster 'Purple Dome' is the world-famous New England Aster that every wildflower gardener wants (Novae-Angliae means New England in Latin)! This native grows to about 2 ft. with large, blue/purple bloom, and is the perfect late-season color maker in meadows. Even the native version covers itself in flowers for weeks, when almost everything else in the meadow is finished blooming. These magnificent plants make up the last hurrah for any good wildflower meadow.
