Get ready for an avalanche of pink lavender flowers on dark stems in September and October. Named for garden at Le Vasterival in France, this 5′ tall aster will billow forth when in bloom, but height can be checked by pinching back to 6″ around the Fourth of July. Spreads a bit, so plant where it won’t overwhelm more delicate perennials.
