Aster Colonial™

A trio of colors, perfect for a late-season "patriotic" or "memorial" garden display!

Aster Colonial™ beams with color in your late-season perennial beds. This “Colonial Series” offers a wonderful trio of colors, with a combination of red, white, and blue flowered cultivars that could create a space for a “patriotic” or a “memorial” garden to veterans and heroes. These native, non-invasive, pollinators, bloom late summer into fall, as other perennials “go by”. Flowers attract butterflies and bumblebees, while seed heads provide a much-appreciated treat for birds, such as Goldfinches
