Aster novi-belgii | Pretty in pink
This lovely Aster was given to me and whilst I am still trying to track down the name of it I thought I would pop it up on the website as it is very pretty and I thought why wait as we get so many comments on it in our gardens here at Puriri Lane. If you are keen on the actual name do keep an eye out as I will update the information when I find out.
Pretty in Pink is tall but compact aster standing at around 1 metre in height and it is is always a mass of flowers from later summer to mid-autumn. Thriving in full sun in average well-drained soil it is a key ingredient of the late summer/autumn garden. Asters are valued as they also make an excellent cut flower and are a must for planting if you are trying to attract both birds and butterflies to your garden.
Asters are easily split by division in spring and should be divided every few years to maintain vigour. Pinching your asters back by taking out the growing tips in spring will also help to keep your plants nice and compact. When they have finished flowering you can cut back the flowering stems in late autumn.
Aster Novi-belgii which is commonly known as the New York aster is in the Asteraceae family which also includes the fabulous Achilleas and Chrysanthemums all of which we sell so be sure to check out some of the lovely shades that would look fantastic with this aster.
