Time to re-think China Asters, a staple of primary colored Autumn grocery store bouquets.

Matsumoto Apricot Aster produces tons of flowers and the sweet yellow center offset by the blush pink petals is just the absolute best combination.

Care: Once they are happy and established in your garden, they are drought-tolerant, but will bloom more with more water. Deer resistant.

Blooms: Mid-Late Summer through first frost. Deadhead the blooms regularly (meaning cut the flowers for bouquets, or if the flowers die on the plant cut them off) to encourage more blooms.

Self-seeding annual: Asters will die in the winter but may self-seed and come back in your garden naturally.

Ships: as a plant in a 2.75" diameter pot, in the Spring.

Growth habit: China Aster has an upright bushy growth, and should be spaced about 9" apart.

Size when mature: 2'

Growing specifics: If you don't want the flowers to self-seed and come back the next year, make sure to pick the flowers before they set seeds.

Plant them outside well after your last frost date, Aster are very cold-sensitive.
