Aster Lady Coral Chamois

Callistephus chinensisLatin name

The Lady Coral Series of Asters have been much admired over the years and we’ve introduced several beautiful colours although our favourite has eluded us until now. Finally, we have stock of Aster Lady Coral Chamois, the dreamiest and most romantic of pale apricot-peach blooms.

This exquisite professional variety with chrysanthemum-like incurved petals and strong straight stems will draw gasps from any self-respecting cut flower enthusiast. 2'. HHA.

How to Grow Aster from Seed

Asters are a traditional and popular cut flower, blooming from mid to late summer through into autumn. Some Asters are naturally compact, others are taller and benefit from staking.

Aster seeds can be sown from early February through to March for potting on from April to June.

Sow Aster seeds onto the surface of a moist, free-draining, seed compost, ideally into plug trays to prevent root disturbance later. Cover the seed with a thin layer of vermiculite, and cover the trays with polythene to retain moisture until the first seedlings apper. Germination normally takes 7 to 10 days at 18-21oC.

After about 5 weeks the young plants will be ready for transplanting into individual 3 inch pots where they can grow on until they are nicely established.

Plant out after hardening off once all danger of frost has passed.
