Write a Review
Seeds readily; for the first two years in a new bed, cut tops off after flowering to keep then from seeding in.
Item #: SYOBLs
Binomial Symphyotrichum oblongifolium, Aster oblongifolius

In botanical nomenclature, it is now (sometimes) referred to as Symphyotrichum oblongifolium.

An excellent, compact aster that displays a mass of light blue during the cool days of fall. Hundreds of daisy-like flowers will keep the bees busy a little while longer at the end of the season. Plant with Prairie Dropseed and Goldenrod as companions.

Seed is fairly easy to germinate, though it does lose some viability after a year or two. Stratification is not necessary.
