New England Aster 'Purple Dome' Characteristics
'Purple Dome' are attractive, low maintenance perennials that can beautifully complement any landscape. They thrive in consistently moist and fertile soils. Air circulation can help to prevent molds and mildews. If the stems reach far beyond the body of the plant, pinch back the stem to help promote a compact appearance. Note that pinching the stems delays flowering.
These compact and dense perennials can develop molds and mildews. Wilts can occur in poorly drained soils.
