Stunning, fully double, rich purple blooms mass throughout summer to autumn. The flowers are so full, they look like little pom poms, and they all but engulf the foliage, this is real eye catcher. Lovely and tall, perfect for picking.

Plant Aster ‘Purple Prince’ in borders, cottage gardens or even large pots. The stems are covered with glossy green leaves. I’ve seen it combined with Persicaria ‘Golden Arrow’ in @ralphbrisow_artist garden with great success.

Once established Aster ‘Purple Prince’ doesn't require a lot of water, even though it grows and flowers through the hotter times of the year. They are vigorous, hardy and offer great quantities of colourful blooms.

In the language of flowers, Aster's denote love or daintiness. The word, Aster, is Latin for Star. Asters are commonly known as Easter Daisies or Michaelmas Daisies.

Asters have been botanically separated into different genus. The European species remain Aster. The North American have changed into three genera, Symphyotrichum, Eurybia and Doellingeria. We like the old fashioned umbrella name Aster but if you want to be more correct in classification this variety would be Symphyotrichum lateriflorus ‘Purple Prince’
