Alert Dwarf Aster

Aster novi-belgii 'Alert'
Out of stock

Fragrant, Showy Accent for Perennial Border

Gardeners who love butterflies plant perennials that bloom in fall, and this is a great selection. You'll love this Alert Dwarf Aster (Aster novi-belgii 'Alert') massed in the front of your garden bed or used in container gardens.

Thrill to the number of butterflies and pollinators that absolutely smother this cute little plant before their long yearly migration South. They'll really appreciate your foresight in providing late season nectar source.

What would Autumn be without that deep, crimson red color? This standout plant delivers real visual impact with high contrast bright yellow eyes against blooms of outstanding rouge red.

Don't worry - this aster won't get all leggy on you, as it's been carefully selected to stay small. Super easy care, if grown in moist, well-drained soil and full sun. Plant it where your hose can reach it, as it - like all asters - was a prairie wetland plant. The butterflies will thank you, thank you, thank you!
