Aster macrophylla
Aster macrophylla
Common Name: Big Leaf Aster
Here's the perfect plant for shady areas with less than perfect soil. Drought tolerant, it does best in loamy soil with good humus content, but will also thrive in sandy loam and clay soils with good organic matter. Spreads gradually by underground rhizomes, and makes a good groundcover in hard-to-landscape shady spots. In late summer, the three-foot-tall bluish/white flowerheads appear. Thrives on well-drained hillsides and is an excellent choice for helping to stabilize slopes.
Height: 12-24 Inches
Spread: 18-36 Inches
USDA Hardiness Zone: 3-8
