General Description

Margrethe Viking hardy aster is a vigorous hardy perennial with a tidy mounding habit. It originates from eastern North America and bears daisies of bright white in early to mid-fall. Plants are more floriferous and uniform if pinched back in late spring to early summer. Provide this aster with slightly moist, loamy soil and full to part sun for best growth. Mass them in mixed borders for a fine fall display. Aster flowers draw a wide variety of pollinators to include bees and butterflies.
