Tonga Aster is a fast growing, late season bloomer which begins flowering in late summer and lasting through early fall. It will grow to 12" tall and just as wide. The blossoms are a lavender purple and will attract butterflies and bees. You can use Tonga Aster as a cut flower to adorn an indoor vase.
Tonga Aster likes to be planted in full sun to part shade in well drained soil. Tonga Aster also will work well in a container for some late season color on your deck or patio.
