Once established Aster 'Orpheus' 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. It has excellent mildew resistance. Cut back to the ground each winter – when they begin to look untidy – this will help them stay lovely and bushy.

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.
