Aster Frikartii Monch is an easy growing nectar plant that adapts well to many growing conditions without complaint. Lavender-blue flowers with daisy-like petals and golden yellow centers burst into bloom in late June, lasting through September and often until the first frost. Fast-growing, this bushy plant is known for its early blooms, disease-resistant foliage and unusual color. (Aster frikartii)
24-36" tall x 18-24" wide. Aster ‘Frikartii Monch’, also known as Frikart’s Aster and Wonder of Staffa is one of the earliest-blooming asters to be found. A standout in border plantings and in the cottage garden, this light lavender-blue variety attracts a flurry of pollinator activity to its nectar-rich blooms. Healthy, deep-green foliage is quick-growing and resistant to disease, lending a sense of fullness to beds. Covered in flowers for much of the season, Frikartii Monch prefers full sun and average soil but will settle for part shade and a moister site. Winter hardy to zone 5.
