The Wonder of Staffa Aster, bred in 1924, was one of four cultivars of Aster x frikartii (A. amellus x A. thomsonii) developed by German hybridizer Frikart, which also included ‘Monch,’ ‘Jungfrau,’ and ‘Eiger.’ In 1939, Wonder of Staffa was praised as “one of the most constant blooming plants in existence producing freely branching sprays of clear lavender-blue flowers in lavish profusion.” This plant attracts butterflies, makes a good cut flower, and tolerates rabbits.
