Masses of delicate clear blue flowers appear on 'Raydon's Favorite' Aromatic Aster in September and October. 'Raydon's Favorite' is tolerant of dry, rocky sites which makes sense because it was found in San Antonio, Texas by Raydon Alexander. Aromatic Aster is adaptable to a wide range of soil conditions and can tolerate heat, pollution, and soil compaction. Since it's foliage is fragant it is usually left alone by rabbits, rodents, and deer. One of famed plantsman, Rick Darke's favorites (New name is Symphyotricum oblongifolium).
PRN Preferred: A consistantly excellent performer.
