‘October Skies’ is a cultivated variety of our native Aromatic Aster (Aster oblongifolius). This selection is a lower-growing variety of the cultivar ‘Raydon’s Favorite‘ and has many of the same great attributes. It has a tighter and more densely growing habit, making it an excellent choice of weed-smothering groundcover over large sunny areas. The foliage remains clean and attractive all season, and requires no pruning or pinching to make it bushy and full.
