A dwarf version of Mels Blue

Stokesia 'Mini Mels'

If you love Mels Blue, but want something even shorter, Mini Mels is for you. Perfect for sunny garden spots and porch and patio pots.

Mels Blue is a lovely, upward-facing Stoke's Aster with the deepest periwinkle blue flowers. Along comes Mini Mels, with its smaller size, plentiful flowers, and compact, tight habit that is so perfect for containers at retail, in porch and patio pots, and in smaller spaces, where you'd love to have a Stoke's aster, but don't have the room.

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.
