A rare hybrid "Aster" producing clumps of upright stems with heads of bright, light, blue flowers in late autumn to 1.2m. Rarely seen and well worth growing! Average soil in sun.
Looks like a hybrid between S. ericoides and S. novae-angliae but maybe not! The flowers are relatively small but the brilliant colour and very late flowering make up for it. Very weather resistant.
Formerly Aster x amethistinus 'Freiburg'.
