ASTER 'Persian Rose'

Image of Aster 'Persian Rose'

Family

Asteraceae

Botanical Name

ASTER 'Persian Rose'

Plant Common Name

Aster, Persian Rose Daisy

General Description

Aster ‘Persian Rose’ adds freshness to faded, late-season gardens with a profusion of cool, lavender-pink daisies with bright yellow centers. The cheerful blossoms are borne on compact, mounded plants in late summer to early fall, and are highly attractive to bees and butterflies.

Grow this lovely perennial in full to part sun and moderately moist, fertile, well-drained soil. If desired, plants may be divided in spring every few years. As with other asters, ‘Persian Rose’ is outstanding in mixed borders or cottage-style gardens, and makes a fine cut flower. The compact size of this hybrid also makes it ideal for fall-themed container compositions.
