Answer: Fall Asters (Aster oblongifolius) are perennials and add exciting color to the landscape from September to November when most all other perennials have stopped blooming. The plants mound at 2' - 3' and are covered with 1 1/2" wide lavender flowers. Excellent drought tolerance. Prefers a sunny, well-drained location, but will flower in partial shade. You can plant them now (as soon as they are available in nurseries) and they will provide color this fall and again every fall thereafter. Enjoy!
