Intense violet-blue puffs stand tall on sturdy stems.
Hybridizer Ernest Ballard developed this fully double aster to display amazing colour, a unique powder-puff form and a long bloom time. Though petite in size, the 5 cm asters grow in abundance in late summer, fairly sparkling in borders, pots and cutting gardens. Butterflies love it, too!Aster novi-belgii
