Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ASTER 'Thyra Viking'( VIKING SERIES) PP10361
Aster, Thyra Viking Aster
This lovely aster colors the garden with mounds of rich, raspberry-pink daisies in late summer to early fall. A patented hybrid, ‘Thyra Viking’ was developed as a cross of the Aster novi-belgii cultivars ‘Purple Viking’ and ‘Royal Ruby’, and is notable for its exceptionally well-branched stems, free-flowering habit and uniform size.
Provide this perennial with full to part sun and moderately moist, fertile, well-drained soil. Pinch back stem tips in late spring or early summer for heavier flowering and denser plant growth. If desired, clumps may be divided in spring every few years. As with other asters, ‘Thyra Viking’ will attract bees and butterflies to the garden, and also makes and excellent cut flower.
