aster ‘Little Carlow’
Symphyotrichum ‘Little Carlow’ (aster ‘Little Carlow’) is a fall-blooming perennial with blue, inch wide flowers with yellow centers that attract butterflies and pollinators on their two-foot stems.
A cross between S. cordifolius and S. novae-belgii, S. ‘Little Carlow’ is more compact than many asters, making it an excellent plant for the front of borders, or as a later season colorful filler between the many taller fall-blooming plants.
