Buy Aster amellus 'Veilchenkönigin' aster: A mildew-resistant aster

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, moderately fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to September
  • Hardiness:fully hardy

    Masses of yellow-centred purple daisies, each up to 5cm across, appear on these compact and mildew-resistant aster. Plant them in clumps or more informal drifts throughout the front of the border and they will give you a good couple of months of colour. Team them with pinks or softer shades of purple as well as silver.

  • Garden care: Stake with bamboo canes or brushwood in early spring. Water regularly during dry spells and deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. After flowering cut the flowered stems to the ground and apply a generous mulch of well-rotted garden compost or horse manure around the base of the plant.

    Asters are one of the easiest plants to take cuttings from All you need to do is pull away sideshoots that have already rooted. These can then be potted up individually or planted directly in to the garden.

Great plant for well-drained sunny places

A good plant for a well-drained sunny place. Needs an open place without being overshadowed by taller plants. Will not survive if soil gets waterlogged in winter.

Hello there Yes you can plant these in pots, but make sure that you use a well drained compost. Hope this helps.

Can you tell !me how developed the plant should be in a pot of this size please ie size. Thank you

Tania

Hello there This comes in a 9cm pot so will be a young plant about a year old. As it is late autumn now, it will have died back or be in the process of dying back so there won't be much showing in the pot. Hope this helps
