Stokesia laevis 'Omega Skyrocket' (Asteraceae)
Tall Stokes' Aster
Everything about this plant is BIG! Fluffy, feathery flowers are 3" across and bloom lavender to cornflower-blue. Sturdy stems reach 3-4' in height — perfect for middle-to-rear of the border. Found in GA, 'Omega Skyrocket' was introduced by the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Plants are tough and adaptable but prefer full sun in average-to-moist conditions. This wonderful super-sized Stokesia is back after a brief hiatus.
