  • Blooms: Early fall to late fall.
  • Form: Has a dwarf, mounding growth habit; when planted en masse, it forms a thick ground cover.
  • Flower Form: Small daisy like flowers.
  • Soil Requirements: Well drained soil. Will tolerate a range of soil conditions.
  • Growth Rate: Slow while establising, fast thereafter.
  • Pruning: Pinch back and divide like mums for best display. General rule of thumb is to pinch until 4th of July and not after. Pinching yields better branching and more flowers. Can be divided every 2-3 years in spring. Remove spent flowers to prevent reseeding.
  • Comments: Asters are invaluable in the hardy border, adding superb color in the autumn. Very durable and long lived. Even heavy, wet soils will suit them. Richer soils will generally yield taller plants. Mounds of color begin in September, in a full range of colors.
