Symphyotrichum oblongifolium 'Fanny's Aster' (Asteraceae)
Dark-purple daisy-like flowers produced in abundance after most other asters have finished. 3-4' branching stems with fragrant gray-green leaves spread to form large clumps. We count on 'Fanny's Aster' and Climbing Aster to end the season with a bang here at Niche, providing color through October and into November. Back after a hiatus — slap a few 'Fanny's' in your garden while supplies last. (Formerly Aster oblongifolius.)
