These are big shaggy bloomed asters with flat petals. Colors are bright pastels - rose pink, lavender, white, and a paler pink. Plants are tall and full. I direct seeded them in mid-May and they bloomed mid-August to late September. Very profuse bloom - a great flower for fall color.

Planted 2005 by accident, a dime a package for seeds. Started and set aside in starter pots. Around June, saw that they were not dead, so put them wherever I had gaps. Also, in some old tree stumps I filled with dirt. They ended up being the sturdiest, hardiest, longest blooming flowers I have ever had (annuals), blooms through October in N.East Ohio. about 18" high, continue to bloom as long as you dead head. Very very sturdy stems. This year, am putting them everywhere, at a dime a seed pack again. Did not fertilize last year, but will this year. These and generic wilflower seed mix and poppies and marigolds (for deer repellant) all I am growing this year for flowers. Wife loves them, so do I.
