 Symphyotrichum oblongifolium is compact and low growing, forming a tidy mound of radiant colour with it's many blue/purple daisy like flowers with golden-yellow centers approximately 1 in. across. The blossoms are carried on stiff well branched, hairy stems, clad with slender blue-green leaves. 

 The native perennial (America), Aromatic Aster is a very late bloomer, but it is worth the wait! It will prolong the color of your garden well into Autumn. It creates showy clusters of flowers that are generally low to the ground.  Since it blooms so late, Aromatic Aster is very valuable to pollinators, as it is one of the last sources of food before winter dormancy.  The ‘aromatic’ portion of the name refers to the leaves when crushed.
