(Zi-wan, Tartarian Aster) Herbaceous perennial native to Asia, flowering in a columnar shape to 4 feet tall. The horticultural advantage is that the plant flowers very late in the autumn, presenting light-blue flowers at a time of year when this color is rather unusual. Flowers measure over an inch across, providing nectar to bees at a time of year when bees may otherwise starve. The dried root is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine: cough, phlegm. Easily grown plant prefers regular garden soil and full sun to part shade. These are indestructible. Space plants 1 to 2 feet apart.
