Symphyotrichum novae-angliae 'Purple Dome'
Most of the asters we've ever purchased at late-season nursery sales have lasted a year or two before we unceremoniously dumped the ugly mildew-ridden things in the trash. Of the traditional asters, the only one we keep around now is the 'Purple Dome' variety. It too is not without its detractors, but in our garden it has been a good performer, making nice rounded blobs of color when they do their thing in late season, while staying nicely in the background before that time.
