Description

Also known as Stokes’ aster, ‘Blue Star’ does just what its name suggests – it’s a star performer for your garden. Large, pale blue, cornflower-like flowers are produced over a low mound of attractive green leaves, making it an ideal plant for late summer containers or for added colour in autumn in your beds or borders. Recommended by the RHS as a ‘Plant for Pollinators’ because the flowers are produced through the spring and summer and are a favourite with butterflies and bees. Easy to grow and hardy in the UK down to -15°C (5°F), Stokesia is a reliable ‘doer’ and the frilly blue flowers are produced in abundance through the summer and autumn. Superb when combined with yellow flowers for contrast, Stokesia is a great plant for cut flowers too, so you can bring their colour into your home. An evergreen perennial, Stokesia provides garden colour all year round, and we supply a collection of 6 plug plants ready for you to pot up and grow on before planting out.
