More Details

Josie and I both fell in love with this variety, above all others, in our aster trial in 2019. It’s elegant, light, and super-airy, like a constellation of flowers on dark, ebony stems. It also looks marvellous on its own in a vase where it will last two weeks.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Space apart well – these don’t like to be crowded. To aid quick establishment, sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi (Rootgrow) into the base of the planting hole.
Care Tips Although mildew resistant, it is wise not to crowd this plant and give it space to receive good air circulation.
Flowering July - October
Vase Life They will look good for a fortnight. If you strip all the leaves below the water line and thin out the leaves up the stem a bit more, and put a drop of bleach in the water, it will maximise the cut-flower potential.
