Aster macrophyllus ‘Twilight’ is a valuable yet uncommonly-grown eastern North American rhizomatous species spreading at a slow to moderate rate forming groundcovering colonies of large, heart-shaped leaves up to eight inches long. In late summer stems rise to 2-3 feet tall topped with flat-topped clusters of lavender-blue flowers that age to rose pink around yellow centres. At flowering time the basal leaves are usually dormant. Flower heads are popular with bees and butterflies.
