Aster lateriflorus ‘Prince’
Common Name: Calico Aster Family: Asteraceae (The Aster Family)

This is a beauty! Purplish green foliage emerges in the spring to form a good mound, turning purplish-plum in the autumn. It has masses of white flowers with raspberry-red disc florets in late summer/autumn at about 30”. Due to the mass of little flowers you will get a haze effect that is stunning in the fall garden. If you want to make it flower lower, remember to pinch it back to 3-4” in June.
