Aster linarifolius

We acquired this gorgeous and unusual little aster from de Hessenhoff nursery and it is been wonderful in the garden. Aster linarifolius is a native of North American and is known as the stiff aster. It’s foliage is beautiful grey green and reminiscent of rosemary foliage with fine needle like leaves. The flowers don’t emerge until October and then carpet the ground with pale lilac blue daisies. For a sunny position with reasonable drainage. Height 20cm.
