Description

Aster amellus 'Veilchenkonigin' is an excellent, deep amethyst purple, with a very long flowering season. An invaluable plant for those of us who want to keep our garden full of colour late in the year.

No autumn garden is complete without its Michaelmas daisies, simple cottage garden perennials which flower long and hard in any soil. We have chosen only the very best to include here, which all grow quickly and easily and have good mildew resistance.

Care Tips

Pinch in midsumer to encourage a great flowering season. Most asters will need dividing every fourth year to maintain vigour which is best done in spring as new growth starts.
