Aster General Information

New England Asters form robust semi-woody clumps that bloom from late summer into fall. Each flowering branch is covered with blossoms creating a stunning display against the dark green foliage. Tolerant of moist, well-drained soil conditions. Very durable and long lasting. Mildew resistant. Asters support bees and butterflies right up until season’s end.

Aster Plant Care

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. Avoid wet overwintering conditions. Remove spent flowers to prevent reseeding.
