Sky Blue Aster, know as Aster oolentangiensis,  Aster azureus, or Symphyotrichum oolentangiensis has numerous spreading flower branches with 1 inch flowers on long stalks that bloom late summer to fall.  The flowers deep blue to lavender petals surrounding a yellow disk are especially appealing to both gardeners and butterflies.  It occurs naturally in dry to mesic prairies and savannas through most of the tallgrass prairie region.  It normally grows 2 to 3 feet tall but can be up to 5 feet tall in rich soil.  Plant in average, dry to moist, well-drained soil in full sun.   Two of our other favorite asters are new england aster and aromatic aster
