Stokesia Honeysong Purple


120 in stock

Common Name: Stokes’ Aster

‘Honeysong Purple’ sports true royal purple flowers with a hint of red towards the center that darkens as it ages. The contrasting white stamens and purple-tinged stems add to its appeal. The individual flowers measure 4 inches across and have petals with deeply serrated edges. They are wonderful in fresh bouquets. The deep green foliage is neatly mounding.

Stokesia is a native North American wildflower. It has been grown for many years for its beautiful flowers and ease of culture. Because of its heat tolerance, it is widely grown in the south. Blooming from midsummer to early fall (if deadheaded), it is a tremendous accent to yellow, pink, or white mums and other late bloomers.
