Beautifully strong flowers in delicate colours. Charming in bouquets (perhaps even a bridal bouquet?) and incredibly long-lasting.
Whether in a flower bed or a pot, Chinese asters grow perfectly straight and upright.
My tip: Change location every year. For even more lush flowers, fertilise during the first bloom.
