Fall would not be complete without a few asters in bloom. While I love the look of ‘mums’ in their oranges, yellows, and browns (especially when they flank a porch or front door), nothing beats the shock of purple from a fall blooming aster. Mine are reliable, and require little care, and they are in their 4th or 5th year. This variety is Aster (novae-angliae) ‘purple dome’. ‘Purple dome’ is one of the hardiest asters and grows from 18-24 inches tall. They bloom August-September. And the bees love them, too!
