A monster of an Aster, ‘Skyscraper’ grows quickly to make a super smashin’ statement  5’x5’  with tons of large 2.5-3” amber centered periwinkle flowers for several months. A highly reliable perennial with many multi-branching stems, it’s a total Summer-Fall show-off and gets even more bloomy each successive year. I think it’s perfect mid-bed, especially paired with yellow roses like this ‘Golden Celebration’ we were trialing in our gardens pictured below. Cut flowers and butterflies galore! Deer resistant! Rich soil. Cut back to 6” in Winter for next season awesomosity!
