              These are the flowers of my childhood. It was the first time I planted them and I am pretty happy that I did. They just started blooming and they are beautiful.

              Didn't Grow

              Comments about American Meadows China Aster Seeds Single Mix:

              So far I've done two plantings, one in a mostly sunny area out front and one in a partly shady area in back. Not so much as a single sprout. It's possible that I didn't keep the front bed moist enough, but the back yard should have seen sprouts by now, I would think?
              I have plenty of seed left and will try another seeding in back. *crosses fingers* I really really want these to grow, but if they fail me, I'll go for more cosmos, since those have been awesome.

              USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

              To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

              • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
              • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
