Fall Aster (Symphyotrichum oblongifolium) Plant Profile!

We are starting to create individual Texas native plants profiles and today we will put the spotlight on Fall Aster (Symphyotrichum oblongifolium).

From the entry:

“A vigorous,  properly placed Fall Aster is a real show stopper. The plant profusely explodes with outstandingly bold purple flowers. Few drought tolerant plants provide such intense color during the fall and Fall Aster is the most prominent one. Full sun and part shade adapted, we use this beauty as a mid layer in our flowerbed designs. You really can’t go wrong with Fall Aster; Plant as a specimen or in a mass.”

 

What do you think about Fall Aster? Do you grow it yourself? Pictures or insights to share?
