Description
A well-loved perennial for late-season colour from August through to early November! As the name suggest, Aster 'Aqua Compact' is a neatly compact cultivar, creating a handsome mound of small, dark green leaves. With the earliest touch of an autumn breeze, its buds unfurl to reveal a splendid display of lilac-blue daisies. This late-flowering beauty is hardy and reliable, making superb cut flowers and providing a good source of nectar for pollinating inscets. A useful addition to the front of borders, cut flower gardens, wildlife areas and patio pots. Height: 35cm (14"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
