Stokesia laevis ‘Silver Moon’

Stokes’ Aster

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.505.170

Stokes′ Aster is a North American native wildflower that is a wonderful addition to the sunny border. This selection has flowers that look much like the native Bachelor Button but white in colour with soft lavender highlights. Plants form a low mound of deep green leaves, remaining evergreen in mild winter areas. Tolerant of hot, humid summer regions. Great for cutting, and also attractive to butterflies. Long blooming. 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.
