A lovely hybrid first bred in 1892 by crossing Aster thomsonii and Aster amellus; combining the long-flowering properties of the former with the height of the latter. Aster x frikartii 'Monch' was rated by Graham Stuart Thomas as the finest Michaelmas Daisy, flowering earlier than most Asters, from late summer to autumn; its fine display of lavender blue flowers provide invaluable late summer colour to the garden.
