Sue, I think these annual asters, callisteph??? are my favorite annuals for picking. I am growing the Standby variety and one called Astoria I believe. It looks like a regular daisy with the dark eye and of course they are the purple and pink. I think that is the only minus to these asters is the lack of lots of different colors.

Hi Lenjo! How are you doing? I also grew the red ribbon, but they are really pink. :) They really had put on a show but flopped badly after our heavy rains - did you get some of that rain?

The red and blue ribbons are Aster chinensis, from Thompson-morgan. I also grew the smaller 'lilliput blue moon'. Very pretty.

Wow, I see they are even more variations than I thought. Gotta check out Tand M seeds.

Hi Eileen, yes that is Liliput Blue Moon, it is really purple. I'll tell ya one thing, the asters do not like all of this rain we have been having! I was hoping for seeds...
