Grape Crush Aster is a stunning, herbaceous perennial. This plant has a large, round shape, and is densely packed with royal, purple-coloured flowers in the fall. Makes excellent cut flowers. Grape Crush Aster is a variety of New England Aster, a native wildflower and is beneficial to local pollinator species, like bees and butterflies.

Very easy to grow, this dark purple Aster can tolerate dry soil and some drought but does best with moist soil. It is recommended to prune back the plant until July to promote dense growth, and remove the potential need for staking during blooming.
