Symphyotrichum novae-angliae ‘Andenken an Paul Gerber’

Symphyotrichum novae-angliae ‘Andenken an Paul Gerber’ is a gorgeous jewel like shade of magenta purple. The benefit of New England asters (of which this is one) is they are entirely resistant to mildew. As established clumps get larger and larger they have a tendency to flop open and need staking, so keep them divided ever 2 years to keep them more self supporting. Height 120cm.
