Aster, Purple (Aster tataricus) potted plant, organic

$7.50$19.95

Family:  Aster (Asteraceae)

Hardy to Zones 3 to 7
(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.

    Hi there! Wondering which plants would be best for a balcony, so they’ll live in a pot? And also, I’d like to plant them now, although I wouldn’t mind waiting to the next season

      Hello Yosai,
      Right, so they live in a pot and perhaps cascade over the side, a kind of hanging gardens of babylon effect. The Aster really would look nice. You could try Saint John’s Wort, too. If the balcony gets too cold this winter, try aloes for indoor use. Check our plant offerings. You have less than a week to make an order–our plant shipping season is nearly over.
