Description

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.

Care Tips

Although mildew resistant, it is wise not to crowd this plant and give it space to receive good air circulation.
