Deep purple blooms and centers, the Purple Dome New England Aster (Aster novae-angliae ‘Purple Dome’) is a pollinator and buzzing bee go-to nectar resource that you will absolutely adore having in your landscape! These faster-growing perennials may not bloom right away, they do bloom just when other plants are calling it quits! Vibrant purple fluffy, frilly blooms start in summer and last right until frost in most climates!
Not just long-lasting blooms, the Purple Dome Aster blooms profusely and completely covers the plant. It is a definite bee and butterfly and bird attractor and a real show-stopper! The neat and tidy rounded mounds of green foliage are so easy-care and have minimal maintenance to keep them looking great!
Growing to about 1-2 feet high and 2-3 feet wide, these space-saving perennials are readily tucked into large existing gardens and small yards with ease! Very cold-hardy and deer-resistant plants, Purple Dome retains its native family’s adaptability and endurance! Featuring fast growth and finely textured green leaves, Aster plants look fantastic even when not in bloom!
Planting and Application:Purple Dome makes an excellent container plant or front of the garden feature! Add as a solo specimen spilling over the edges of a pot or as a late season accent in mixed planters around your patio, front porch or even decorating your front entry with seasonal color! In the garden bed and border, these are tidy edging and mass planting perennials! Use in solid rows or winding bands throughout perennial gardens for late season color!
Aster looks outstanding when paired with ornamental grasses, late blooming Rudbeckia, Coneflowers, and Chrysanthemums! They of course look fantastic with other Asters! These cheerful little plants fit anywhere in the sun garden, perennial border or cottage garden! And adding just one or two turns any garden into a pollinator garden! Aster are a host plant for the Pearl Crescent Butterflies larvae, and feeds hungry bees, butterflies, and other beneficial insects with their generous amounts of late-season nectar!

#ProPlantTips for Care:Requiring full sun, Purple Dome can take some afternoon shade in the hottest of its favored USDA growing zones of 4 through 8. Plant these herbaceous perennials in a moderate soil range with good drainage. Tolerant of lower moisture to average moisture environments once established, Aster should not be allowed to become extremely dry during the summer. Pinching back the stem tips in late spring and early summer will produce denser growth and heavier blooming. This plant may be divided every few years in the spring.
