Aster novi-belgii ‘Early Blue’

Aster novi-belgii ‘Early Blue’ blooms from July to October

Asters are a great perennial for if you need late summer and fall color. The ‘Early blue’ variety starts blooming in July and goes on all the way to October!

Full of buds!

They get around 10-12 inches (30-35cm) tall and prefer full sun. In my garden they get around 7-8 hours of sun and they do really well.

Flower bed with Aster novi-belgii ‘Early Blue’, Peonies and Lady’s mantle

One flowerbed – three seasons

It’s almost hard to believe that this is the same bed! Early spring this bed is full of tulips. In June the peonies put on quite a show and late summer to fall belongs to the Asters.
