Aster macrophylla ‘Twilight’ is proving its worth this season. Monsoon like downpours have characterised August and many herbaceous plants have bowed to the weight of the rain. Not so this strong growing and mass flowering of this Aster.
Reaching a height of one metre it produces prolific amounts of blue ray florets. The plant becomes home to swarms of hoverflies in the warmth of early evening, just as twighlight time arrives.
