CHINA ASTER POWDER PUFF MIXED  (Callistephus Chinensis)

China Aster (Callistephus Chinensis Powder Puff) - Attract attention to your garden by starting some Aster seeds! This wonderful China Aster flower seed produces double flowers. Powder Puff Aster is one of the most popular cut flowers available from flower seed. These large flowers resemble chrysanthemum flowers and come in a mix of colours with creamy yellow centres. Asters establish nicely from flower seeds and bloom throughout summer.

Aster flowers are excellent for tall borders or beds. If you want a profusion of brilliant blooms for a long lasting flower bouquet, China Asters are an excellent choice. The easy-to-grow upright plants will continue to bloom throughout the summer. Aster plants prefer a sunny location; however, they will tolerate light shade. Sow Callistephus Chinensis seeds outdoors in rich, well-drained soil after all danger of frost is passed. For earlier blossoms, start flower seed indoors 6 - 8 weeks before last frost. For successive blooms, plant these flower seeds at 2 week interval.
