I really want to add one to my bed. I have an empty spot that I think is just screaming aster. It in front of the Rudbeckia so I don't want a super tall one. Any suggestions on which to get and where to get it from?

Thanks for any help!

"Purple Dome" is nice, not over 18" and a deep dark purple. Being an older cultivar, it is often available through local nurseries.

I have photos of that one and like it! Have looked for it here locally but not found it yet. But I did see that Bluestone carries it. Thanks!
