Like a hardy, purple gerber daisy!

Stokesia Mega Mels

Huge flowers and a tight, compact habit

This is NOT your grandmother's stoke's aster! No way, no how! This is an amazing new selection from the breeders of our popular garden staple, Mels Blue from The Netherlands. Mega Mels has the compact, sturdy, tight habit you are looking for in a retail-ready perennial, and on top of that, it is covered with 3-4" wide purple daisies. It truly looks like a hardy, purple Gerber daisy from a distance. 

Megan Mels flowers from mid to late summer and looks as perfect in a pot at retail as id does in the front or middle of any garden border. Mega Mels also makes a nice accent in a mixed container or single plant pot on any sunny porch or patio. 





Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
