“Stokes’ aster is a beautiful and useful native plant, found from South Carolina to Florida. Its leaves persist through the winter, in dark green, attractive rosettes. A number of cultivars are available, such as ‘Blue Danube’ with 5” diameter flowers and ‘Alba’ and ‘Silver Moon’ with white flowers. This plant was very popular in old gardens. They are occasionally damaged by deer.

“Stokes’ Aster is a herbaceous perennial that may grow 1-2 feet tall. The leaves are basal except for smaller clasping leaves that occur on new sprouts. The deep violet or lavender blue flowers appear in early summer.” (North Carolina Extension)
