Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ASTER 'Yomagic'(MAGIC™) PP15690
Aster, Magic Aster
Loads of rich purple flowers, compact size and uniform growth combine to make ‘Yomagic’ a stellar perennial for late-season color in containers and borders. Marketed under the name Magic™, this Yoder Brothers, Inc. introduction resulted from a cross between Aster ‘Sunny Almog’ and an unknown cultivar. Its vivid, yellow-centered daisies are borne on low, spreading, well-branched plants in very early autumn, and are highly attractive to bees and butterflies.
Provide Magic™ with full to part sun and moderately moist, fertile, well-drained soil. The stems of this dwarf aster do not need staking or pinching, but may benefit from thinning to improve air flow and deter powdery mildew. If desired, clumps may be divided in spring every few years. The short stature of Magic™ makes it perfect for fall-themed container compositions, or for massing at the front of mixed beds and borders.
