(syn: Symphyotrichum oblongifolium) We originally acquired Aster 'Fanny', a selection of the American native Aster oblongifolius, from Montrose Gardens, which acquired it from Ruth Knopf of Boone Hall Plantation in South Carolina. Ruth acquired the aster from her maid, Fanny, who acquired it as a passalong plant from her grandmother. Aster 'Fanny' is one of the last asters to flower in our garden, usually in October and November. 'Fanny', the aster (not the maid), makes a nice 2' tall clump to 8' in width and is smothered with 1" blue flowers starting in October (NC)...awesome! For a fall show in a hot dry site, a nice 'Fanny' is a hard thing to beat.
