Aster Chinensis hybrids are excellent for bedding. These plants are robust, bushy and very wilt resistant. Well formed, globular, weather resistant flowers in blue, pink, rose, rose-red and white are produced over a long period. Useful as a summer flowering pot plant and for window boxes. Plant in full sun (or part sun in hottest climates). Asters prefer rich or sandy, well-drained soil. Provide regular moisture, but do not overwater. Excellent in containers. The flowers attract butterflies and are outstanding for cutting.
