ASTER (ROYALTY SERIES)

Family

Asteraceae

Botanical Name

ASTER( ROYALTY SERIES)

Plant Common Name

Aster, Royalty Aster

General Description

Asters in the Royalty Series are notable for their abundance of late season flowers, compact mounded habit, and overall good garden performance. Introduced by Yoder Brothers, Inc., these hybrids were bred from species native to eastern North America. The vigorous, well-branched plants bear showy, double to semi-double daisies of pink, purple or violet-blue over a long period in late summer and fall.

Provide these hardy perennials with full to part sun and evenly moist, loamy, well-drained soil. As with other asters, members of the Royalty Series are great for bringing late-season color to mixed beds and borders, and are also lovely in fall-themed container compositions. Their bright blossoms are attractive to bees and butterflies, and also make fine cut flowers.
