Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ASTER 'Yoballad'(BALLAD™) PP16318
Aster, Ballad Aster
Rich violet-blue flowers, compact size, strong growth and good resistance to powdery mildew combine to make ‘Yoballad’ an outstanding perennial for late-season garden color. Marketed under the name Ballad™, this Yoder Brothers, Inc. introduction resulted from a cross between Aster ‘Professor Kippenburg’ and an unknown cultivar. Its vivid, yellow-centered daisies are borne on low, spreading, well-branched plants in very late summer to early fall, and are highly attractive to bees and butterflies.
Provide this lovely aster with full to part sun and moderately moist, fertile, well-drained soil. If desired, clumps may be divided in spring every few years. The short stature of Ballad™ makes it perfect for containers or massing at the front of mixed beds and borders.
