Discovered by Scott Warren of Kentucky, this exciting new stokes aster extends the typical blue color range to a wonderful shade of deep violet-purple. For nearly a month during the summer, the large 4-5" frilly flowers (emerging blue, then changing to purple) extend 12" above the green strap leaved clump! Are you flower arrangers listening?
