Description
This is famous pink one among the dwarf asters. With bright daisy-like flowers and neat short growth, you can depend on them for stunning flowers like clockwork when fall rolls around.

The Dwarf Asters The famous dwarf aster group is one of the very best ways you can assure some fall bloom for your meadow or garden. Ive grown them all, and they are simple to handle, and hardy as oaks. They stay short and spread rapidly. In fact, if you want to do the work, after about two years, you can dig up two or three plants, and divide them into twenty...and then replant yourself a huge patch or yards of edging. Before bloom, they're neat low green tufts, so they're great plants all season long.

The dwarf Aster dumosis hybrids resulted from a cross between wild Aster nova novi-belgii, the much taller New York Aster, with another wild aster from the Pacific northwest.

      Nothing like the photo. Not sure if I did something wrong, but never bloomed. Stayed green all summer, but no blooms.
