Fall Aster

Aster 'Kickin® Carmine Red' PPAF

Plant bears loads of small, charming, carmine-red daisy flowers for months! Perfect for any garden or container.

Also known as Fall Asters, these are terrific favorites for autumn color in the perennial border. Plants form bushy mounds, bearing loads of small daisy flowers. This is a compact selection with single, vibrant, carmine-red blossoms, each with a tiny bright-yellow button eye. Pinch plants before July to keep especially low in habit. Excellent in containers. Most Asters will be troubled much less with powdery mildew when grown in a moist, rich soil. Bred by Kientzler of the Netherlands. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
