This form, selected by Roger Raiche, has larger flowers than the standard A. divaricatus. They are held on lovely, dark, wiry stems that grow just under 2 ft. tall over spreading mats of foliage to 2 ft. wide.Plant in light shade with moderate to regular summer water. Will tolerate dryish conditions once established. Aster's are attractive to pollinators.
