Yoder Brothers

Family

Asteraceae

Botanical Name

ASTER 'Yofrolic'(FROLIC™) PP19104

Plant Common Name

Aster, Frolic Aster

General Description

This lovely, early-blooming aster displays a proliferation of semi-double, bright pink daisies in late summer to early fall atop tidy, compact mounds of fine, dark green foliage. Developed by Yoder Brothers, this patented cultivar was selected for its uniform growth and heavy blooming habit, and is marketed under the name Frolic™.

For best growth, provide this perennial with full sun and rich, loamy soil of average moisture. Frolic™ is an excellent choice for bringing late-season color to mixed borders and fall-themed container compositions, and its rosy blossoms are highly attractive to bees and butterflies.
