Aster oblongifolius

Outstanding native Texas, fall blooming aster! Mounds out to 2�-3� with tiny gray-green aromatic foliage & is smothered with lavender daisies all fall! An excellent fall nectar plant. An incredible performer & very long lived. Tough & fairly drought tolerant once established. Full sun or light shade. Butterflies!
