Peachie’s Pick Stokes’ Aster is a fluffy compact native evergreen perennial with medium green foliage that forms a basal rosette.  Cornflower-like violet flowers bloom on erect leafy stems from summer into fall.  Grows best with full sun and well-drained soils.   Deadheading individual spent flowers and spent stems can encourage additional blooms.  Good drought and heat tolerance.

Stokesia laevis are a native host plant for several moths and butterflies, notably the Swallowtail Butterfly.
