Annual Crego Giant Asters are a favorite for cut-flower bouquets. Huge chrysanthemum-like shaggy blossoms are held high above the foliage on long stiff stems. Plant height is typically 2-3 feet, but can be taller. Cut flowers will last 8 to 10 days in water.
The flower colors include white, pink, deep rose and purply-blue. This eye catching aster is easy from seed and a good choice for beginner gardeners. Asters prefer full sun and an amended soil, water in drought. Increase by seed.
