This aster is on my 'must get' list. Apparently it originates from Devizes and I'm gradually assembling any Wiltshire originated plants I can find for the garden :)

A favourite with me Shirl. Your photos have captured its beauty.

Hello again to you all, thanks for visiting and leaving your comments :-)

Lisa, it really is. I sourced out a nursery for this plant as not often seen in garden centres up my way. I originally planted it round the side of the house but moved my two plants so I can see them from my gardenwatch window (to see bees and butterflies visit it) and it has been a knockout in terms of colour. It’s a beauty especially now with the acers autumn colours. I’m loving it!

Sue, Absolutely, this more compact one is the only aster I have in the garden. I’d happily buy more for other borders too – I just need to find room for it :-)

VP, get it, do get it for 2018! What a great idea to focus on with a garden plant list. Great info to add here too – thanks :-)

Anna, I’m not at all surprised, I would think a favourite with everyone that grows this one. Thanks, the colours are so nice and rich with the autumn light :-)
