Asters are daisy-like perennials with starry-shaped flower heads that range in color from white to blue to purple. They bring delightful beauty to the garden in late summer and autumn, when many of our summer blooms may be fading. Aster “Crego” (Callistephus chinensis “Crego Mix”), comes in purple, red, white and pink. The “Crego” cultivar features delicately curled petals and a full flower that blooms in summer and fall. These summer annuals grow well in most climates, but they can’t tolerate frost or drought. Sowing seeds indoors six weeks before the last spring frost and watering them properly in the garden encourage long-lasting blooms and healthy plants.
The plant is versatile and can be used in many places—borders, rock gardens, or wildflower gardens, to name a few.
