Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
Soil: Average soil. Very tolerant. Richer soils will generally yield taller plants.Light: Partial to full sun
Water: Needs 1 inch weekly. Water more often in extreme heat. Some asters are moisture-sensitive; if your plants have too much moisture or too little moisture, they will often lose their lower foliage or not flower well. Keep an eye out for any stressed plants and try a different watering method if your plants are losing flowers.
Spacing: 1-1.5 ft apart
Fertilizing: Light application of slow release fertiizer at time of planting and every spring should be more than adequate.
Winterizing: Cut asters back in winter after the foliage has died. Avoid wet overwintering conditions.
Maintenance & Pruning: Pinch back and divide like mums for best display. General rule of thumb is to pinch until 4th of July and not after. Pinching yields better branching and more flowers. Can be divided every 2-3 years in spring. Remove spent flowers to prevent reseeding.
