New England aster Interesting Notes

A vigorous sport with all the famous assets of 'Purple Dome' – tough, compact, disease-resistant and heavy-blooming – in a bright new color for the fall garden. Hot raspberry-pink starry flowers completely cover foliage. Vernalization is not required for flowering. Like 'Purple Dome', and unlike most of its species, 'Vibrant Dome' needs no cutback for height control. Compact mounds of attractive dark green, lance-shaped foliage. - Must Have Perennials™

Originally occurring in moist prairies, meadows, thickets, low valleys and stream banks throughout the eastern United States, Symphyotrichum novae-angliae grows in full sun in average to moist soil. New England aster can go through short dry periods and prefers good drainage.

Aster species are a staple in plantings with the intention of erosion control and pollinator habitat. For best practices in highly managed settings, cut back after flowering to prevent the spread of variable seedlings.
