ASTER 'Yopeter the Third'( PETER III, ROYALTY SERIES) PP19018

Plant Common Name

Aster, Peter III Aster

General Description

Asters in the Royalty Series are best known for their abundance of late season flowers, compact, mounded habits, and good garden performance. ‘Yopeter the Third’ forms a vigorous, well-branched clump of foliage which is topped with showy, double to semi-double, light blue-violet daisies over a long period in fall. This hybrid was introduced by Yoder Brothers, Inc. in 2007, and is sold under the trade name of ‘Peter III’.

For best growth, provide this perennial with full to part sun and slightly moist, well-drained, loamy soil. Its bright, prolific flowers are terrific for livening up tired, late-season beds and borders. They also make great cut flowers, and are attractive to bees and butterflies.
