A little like a chrysanthemum, a little like a peony, who would believe that this beautiful bloom is an Aster? Big flowers on tall stems make Peony Duchess Asters the perfect addition to the cutting garden and their lovely, soft pink/apricot hue makes them a show stopper wherever they are planted or displayed.

What a rewarding experience to Peony Duchess Asters are breathtaking, and this soft pink/apricot colored flower is the perfect addition to the cutting garden.

These Aster flowers are very large with double incurved petals. They resemble chrysanthemums that bloom in the fall, but Asters bloom many weeks before. The Aster plants have an upright growth habit and have 5 to 8 floral stems. This variety makes exceptional cut flowers with long stems and showy blooms that have a long vase-life.

Aster Peony Duchess seeds can be started indoor in the early spring. The flower seeds should be pressed into the soil and lightly covered. Maintain moisture so that the Aster seeds will not dry out. Harden off the Aster plants for 10 - 14 days before planting out once temperatures are consistently warm. This annuals like a position in full sun to partial shade.
