Forget pretty in pink, the Aster is pretty in purple! Hailing from the Asteraceae family, this flowering perennial is a great way to bring some fun to your green space.
Asters love basking in the sun so position yours in partial to full sun with well-draining soil. Pollinators love Asters, so planting some in your garden will encourage bees and butterflies. Asters are particularly great for providing a late summer burst of colour your garden, and they can bloom through autumn, too, keeping pollinators and gardeners alike very happy!
A super versatile plant, your Aster will thrive in borders, pots or even in wildflower gardens. Pinch back your Aster in late spring/ early summer to encourage growth and bushiness. Asters also make great floral arrangements - cut them when the buds are just opening and enjoy watching them open inside.
May come in mixed colours.
