This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, moderately fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Slender lavender-blue ray-florets surround a golden yellow disc, forming good-sized flowerheads to 8cm across, which top sturdy, well-branching stems from midsummer to mid-autumn. This award-winning Michaelmas daisy is highly prized for its vigorous growth and resistance to disease.

  • Garden care: Stake with bamboo canes or brushwood in early spring. Water regularly during dry spells and deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. After flowering cut the flowered stems to the ground and apply a generous mulch of well-rotted garden compost or horse manure around the base of the plant.
