Description
Aster Symphyotrichum laeve 'Bluebird' has beautiful sky-blue flowers with yellow centers that bloom in the fall; nectar source and host plant for butterflies; full sun; 2'-3'; winter hardiness zone 4-8; plug.

Just when you think the garden is over, this group of plants pop into bloom and provide color until a hard freeze.  (Note:  Cutting back about 1/2 the stem height by July 4th will help keep them from growing too tall and flopping over when in bloom).

Our pollinators are so important to the sustainability of our gardens and food crops for insect and birds and if each of us participates in healthy gardening practices and chooses some of the pollinator attracting plants, we can collectively make a HUGE difference.
