Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ASTER 'Pink Yomagic'(PINK MAGIC™) PP21190
Aster, Pink Magic Aster
One of several dwarf fall-blooming asters developed for the greenhouse and florist trade by Yoder Brothers, Inc., Pink Magic™ bears numerous bright pink, semi-double daisies on compact, upright stems. It originated as a mutation of Aster 'Yomagic.'
The yellow-centered, magenta-pink blossoms of this hardy perennial are complemented by dark green, lance-shaped foliage, and are highly attractive to butterflies and other small, pollinating insects. Containerized plants have a dense rounded habit; plants grown in open soil spread via rhizomes to form broad clumps.
This aster performs best in full sun and moderately fertile, well-drained, evenly moist soil. Dwarf asters such as Pink Magic™ do not need staking or pinching, but may benefit from thinning to improve air flow and deter powdery mildew. Divide clumps every few years in spring, if necessary.
Fall-blooming asters are outstanding for adding splashes of late-season color to mixed borders and wildflower gardens, and their blooms make excellent, long-lasting cut flowers. Dwarf cultivars make nice additions to fall-themed container compositions.
