Aster, Matsumoto Formula Mixed

100% of 100

100 days. A stunning rainbow of color from beautiful Japan. A vivid mix of double-flowered asters, with impressive disease tolerance. This blend of bold purple, fuchsia, lavender, pink, red, white, and apricot is a perfect fit for containers, beds, borders, and of course, cut flower design! The sturdy stems reach 24-30 inches in length. 2-3 inch diameter flowers with yellow centers. The extra-full petals with their attractive colors are highly desired for floral design, making incredible arrangements. Asters have long graced beds and borders and cottage gardens. Even the famous gardening president, Thomas Jefferson, was said to have an appreciation for the sturdy and brilliant blooms of China asters. Flower farmers and supporters of the slow flowers movement especially appreciate the peony flowering asters, which look regal and expensive but are really easy growing and rugged in nature and much less fussy than actual peonies.
