Beautiful, compact plant, which literally is covered in tiny, white flowers in autumn. Its blossoms resemble those of the heath plants of the British moors.This aster is perfectly suited to our climate and spreads by rhizomes to form strong, tight bushes of small leaves. Clumps can get large, especially in good soil.
