Aster novae-angliae Skyscraper

From Jane Coogan Beer

Categories: ,


Per Jane, a drought tolerant, clay friendly perennial flowering pollinator plant.  She adds it will spread profusely in a heavily watered garden but doesn’t spread much in mine.

Per Annie’s Annuals: A monster of an Aster, ‘Skyscraper’ grows quickly to make a super smashin’ statement  5’x5’  with tons of large 2.5-3” amber centered periwinkle flowers for several months. A highly reliable perennial with many multi-branching stems, it’s a total Summer-Fall show-off and gets even more bloomy each successive year. Cut flowers and butterflies galore! Deer resistant! Rich soil. Cut back to 6” in Winter for next season awesomosity!
