This newer variety of the hardy classic “Michaelmas Daisy” was introduced in 1943, so I wonder where it’s been all this time? Profuse clusters of charming 1” finely rayed soft pink blooms brightened by a cherry ring and golden-yellow center captivate the late season on well-branched sprays from mid-late Summer thru Fall. To 4-6’ tall and to 3’ across with mostly upright stems, it’s a good idea to pinch it back in June for a bushier habit. Tough, mildew resistant and long-lived , it’s also tolerant of CLAYISH soil and salt conditions. Combines tastefully with other Asters and is very much the enduring hero in butterfly and cottage gardens. Best in rich soil. Awesome cut flowers and deer and rabbit resistant!
