Culture

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Prefers organically rich soils. Good air circulation and consistent moist soils with good drainage helps reduce incidence of foliar diseases. Pinching back stems several times before mid-July will help control plant height, promote bushiness and obviate any need for staking. Pinching is probably less important for this compact cultivar than for taller asters. Thinning stems in summer promotes better air circulation. Plants may be cut to the ground after flowering.

Pinching of this cultivar is not required due to compact size. Plants do not come true from seed, so consideration should be given to cutting back stems after flowering to prevent self-seeding.

Noteworthy Characteristics

Asters are the mainstay of many fall gardens producing daisy-like flowers.

Genus name comes from the Latin word aster meaning star for the shape of the flowers.

‘Wood’s Purple’ is a compact aster form that is similar to A. novae-angliae in appearance, but is noted for having much better disease resistance. It typically grows in a mounded clump to 12-18” tall. Small, semi-double, blue-violet to purple flowers (to 1/2” across) with yellow centers bloom in late summer to early fall. Glossy dark green leaves have excellent disease resistance. This cultivar is part of a Wood aster series that also includes A. ‘Wood’s Pink’ and A. ‘Wood’s Blue’.

Garden Uses

Borders, cottage gardens, butterfly gardens. Also may be used as a perennial edging plant along walkways or paths. Also may be grown in containers in sunny locations.

Buyers will receive 1 live plant with plenty of new growth, the root ball measures 2.5" x 3.5". You can choose to purchase 1 or more plants.


FAQs

Certain plants prefer colder climates and others prefer mild winters. So knowing what your hardy zone is very important. For example, if I needed to find out what my hardy zone is, I would go to Google and type in "Coeur d' Alene, Idaho hardy zone. It's that simple!

Yes, I only offer top size bulbs so you can rest assured that they will perform well and bloom in your garden the very same season. However, certain plants like Peonies may take two seasons to grow be for showing flowers. For best results be sure plant your bulbs as soon as they arrive. If you purchase bulbs in the Fall they should be planted in the Fall. If you purchase in the Spring they should be planted in the Spring (after danger of frost has passed).
