The violet daisy-shaped blooms of 'Purple Dome' Aster pair beautifully with its honey yellow centers and forest green foliage. This native wildflower is easy to grow and compact, making it a great choice for containers, borders and small-space gardens. 'Purple Dome' bursts into bloom in the late summer, providing much-needed color and vital nectar for pollinators right when much of the garden has finished for the season. (Aster novae-angliae)
18-24" tall x 18-36" 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 3 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.
