Description

Oh yeah! Outstanding purple fall color from a native plant that pollinators love. This fall favorite comes on like a grape crush with full plants absolutely exploding with dark purple flowers. This aster forms a nice round mound and works well in border plantings and mass plantings in your garden. It's also a great option for fall container plantings giving you color as you close out the growing season.

Caring for Aster novae-angliae 'Grape Crush'

Asters appreciate rich, evenly moist soil and lots of sun. They grow to be full and quite large so give them lots of room for air circulation as powdery mildew can be a problem. This cultivar is smaller than most, but still consider pinching plants back from late spring until July 4th to keep them compact for the fall bloom period. Divide aster every couple of years in the spring to maintain healthy plants.

Beautiful plant

When this plant arrived I was pleasantly surprised at how large and beautiful it was. It had an ecofriendly pot and was amazingly healthy. I have planted it and it is growing just great. I can't wait to see the flowers when they bloom. I was excited to find this Aster 'Grape Crush'. I think it will be the perfect size and shape for my flower circle.
