Stokesia - Stokes Aster, Cornflower Aster

Generally we do not think of a China Aster resembling a Cornflower, but it is true that the Stokesia resembles them both. Stokesia Iaevis (cyanea) is a low plant, seldom above 1 1/2 feet tall, and with light lavender blue, white, purple and rose colored flowers produced from early July to October.

UTILIZE. They are especially recommended for the front of a border and may be used for cut flowers.

GENERAL. Generally it is stated that this plant is sensitive to cold, heavy soils and seems to thrive with drought-resisting subjects, well drained in Winter. It prefers full sun.

PROPAGATION. When raised from seed it blooms the first year.
