CALLISTEPHUS chinensis( NEVITA SERIES)
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
The Nevita Series of China aster includes a collection of bushy but nicely branching annuals, all native to China. Green foliage is accented by a range of colorful blooms that are golf ball-sized and pompon-shaped, flowering earlier in summer than others, in either white, blue-violet or rose-pink. 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. Plants in the Nevita Series are resistant to various wilt diseases but still avoid overwatering or poorly drained soils as once leaf yellowing occurs there is no treatment. They are ideal for a cutflower or en massed in border or container plantings.
