Stokesia laevis ‘Blue Danube’


Stokes’ Aster

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.505.100


Stokes’ Aster is a North American native wildflower that is a wonderful addition to the sunny border. This selection has flowers a little like a huge, double Shasta Daisy in effect, but soft lavender-blue in colour. Plants form a low mound of leathery green leaves, remaining evergreen in mild winter areas. Tolerant of hot, humid summer regions. Great for cutting, and also attractive to butterflies. This needs good drainage, particularly in the winter, so a raised bed or rock garden might suit it well. Also a good candidate for mixed containers. Remove faded flowers to encourage more buds.
