Aster 'Woods Blue' Plants

Aster dumosus

The Wood's Aster group has some distinctive features: low and rounded growth habit with profuse flowering. 'Wood's Blue' Aster is known for perfectly clean foliage which is covered with lovely blue flowers with gold centers in early fall. A compact growing habit combined with a long bloom period and heavy flowering, makes this a wonderful fall plant and a welcomed alternative to mums!

Tips: Good Advice: treat asters like a mum and pinch back for best display. Remove spent blooms to prevent the plants from reseeding. General rule of thumb is to pinch until 4th of July and not after. This will lead to better branching and more flowers. We suggest dividing every 2 or 3 years in the spring, and AVOID wet overwintering conditions.
