This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Button-like and bicolored, the Nevita Rose China aster is a nicely branching annual native to China that has rosy magenta flowers with a yellow eye. Green foliage is topped by golf ball-sized flowers beginning in midsummer. The flattened blossoms are held on knee-high mounding plants.
China aster can be planted in loam or sandy soil in well drained conditions and full sun. Do not bother to deadhead spent blossoms as it will not reflower. Resistant to various wilt diseases, 'Nevita Rose' is best when not overwatered or in poorly drained soils as once leaf yellowing occurs there is no treatment. This selction is nice as a cutflower or en massed in border or container plantings.
