Butterfly IconDeer Resistant IconRock Garden IconHummingbird Icon

Plant Type: Perennials

Densely packed clusters of semi-double, pink flowers are perched atop dwarf, compact plants.  Blooms prolifically in late summer and fall when most other plants are spent.  Like all the Wood's Asters, this is a wonderful container plant, with a compact habit and unstoppable clear pink flowers with gold centers. Bred for compact habit, long bloom period and heavy flowering, all of the Woods Asters are outstanding pot crops and should be used far more often as a sturdy perennial alternative for mums.
