Stokesia - Stokes Aster, Cornflower Aster

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.
