I bought this plant last Summer, I wasn't too impressed. This year it came out blazing! It put on a lot of growth, full of buds, beautiful color! Highly recommend this Aster for Summer color.

This is the most amazing variety of Stokesia I have found. Leaves stay beautiful, flowers are upright and long lasting. Even lasts through our August heat!Leslie, Georgia, United States, 8 weeks ago
