Prolific lilac pink, semi double flowers over mounding, deep green foliage. A nice, low growing choice with good vigour. This sized Aster is easily used in rock gardens, border edges, pots or wherever you need a glorious pop of colour. Each bloom is around 3.5cm across and they begin late summer and continue for many weeks.
Once established the plants don't require a lot of water, even though they grow and flowers through the hotter times of the year. They are vigorous, hardy and offer great quantities of colourful blooms.
In the language of flowers, Aster's denote love or daintiness. The word, Aster, is Latin for Star. Asters are commonly known as Easter Daisies or Michaelmas Daisies.
Asters have been botanically separated into different genus. The European species remain Aster. The North American have changed into three genera, Symphyotrichum, Eurybia and Doellingeria. We like the umbrella Aster to keep it simple and a little old fashioned, but the current classification this variety would be Symphyotrichum novi-belgii ‘Rosenwichtel’
