The plants grow to a height of 18 inches with a tansy-like, ferny foliage on many-branched stems which form a bushy plant. The daisy-like flowers are an intense lavender with yellow centers which bloom from July to October.

Purple Aster is adapted throughout the west on dry sandy soils in full or partial sun. Seed should be broadcast 1/4 inch deep. Plantings should be made in spring, early summer or fall. Seed germinates best with warm soil temperatures.
