Description

You’ll either love 1970’s mauve — as I have come to — or you’ll abhor it. Either way, this crazy Edwardian bathing hat-style aster is calmed by the blues and purples of phlox, catanache, and echiums to make a vase that wins the day.

This collection contains 5 seedlings each of:
  • Callistephus chinensis 'Lady Coral Lavender'
  • Catananche caerulea
  • Echium vulgare 'Blue Bedder’
  • Phlox drummondii grandiflora 'Sugar Stars'

Care Tips

Requires little aftercare except watering during dry spells. Will self-seed freely, remove seedheads if you do not want it to spread.
