Heart-leaved, or Blue Wood, Aster makes a lovely addition to any garden and will do well in part shade.


By late summer flowers cover this plant attracting all manner of pollinators. Blue Wood also is a larval host to the stunning Pearl Crescent butterfly and of special value to several native bee species.


Pinch back stems, or prune, after flowering to avoid self-seeding.
