The Pot ‘N Patio Series are selections of China Aster bred for compactness, double flowers, and a range of colors. The parent species, native to China, is a bushy, green-leaved annual. These selections are dense, small, fast-growing, bushy, annuals that send up short stalks above the leaves bearing large, double flowers (extra petals) that are round and domed, in colors ranging from white through pink to pinkish-red and purple. Flowering continues from mid-summer through fall, Deadheading encourages continuous bloom.
Grow the Pot ‘N Patio series en masse as bedding plants in a bed or border, or in a container. They grow and flower best in full sun and moist, well-drained, fertile soil. They are susceptible to wilt so avoid overwatering or poorly drained soils. The flowers are excellent for cutting.
