Aster ‘Kinglake’ was proudly bred in Australia by the team at Antique Perennials. It is wonderfully compact and incredibly floriferous. The narrow petalled, soft mauve blooms cover the plant from late summer and last well.

Plant Aster ‘Kinglake’ in borders, cottage gardens or even large pots. It’s petite size allows it to squeeze in along edging, towards the front of beds, in pots, rockeries and more. While small in size it certainly makes an impact.

Once established Aster ‘Kinglake’ doesn't require a lot of water, even though it grows 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 old fashioned umbrella name Aster but if you want to be more correct in classification this variety would be Symphyotrichum laevis ‘Kinglake’.
