A prolonged blooming window and exceptional vase life make China aster one of the most popular flowers for cutting. They can be grown in the greenhouse or the field and it is possible to grow them year-round in a heated greenhouse or in moderate climates. China aster is relatively easy to grow except for its susceptibility to aster yellows; to avoid the disease, we strongly advise crop rotation and use of row covers. Choose from peony-type, quill-type, or spray-type varieties in a range of colors.
Peony-type blooms with excellent uniformity in an easy-to-grow annual.
