Wonderful in borders from midsummer through to autumn
Large, incurved, chrysanthemum-like heads in strong colours are the hallmark of this upright, strong growing aster seed blend. Duchess Mixed makes a magnificent show in borders from midsummer onwards and is long lasting as a cut flower.
Aster is a half-hardy annual, which flowers the same year as sowing. If desired it can be grown to maturity in pots in an unheated greenhouse for late autumn colour.
