Flowering from late summer into the fall, Mixed Medley of Asters produces a dazzling display of daisy-like blooms in blue, pink and purple. Growing to a height of around three feet, this aster forms a dense mound of green foliage and is perfect for a border, foundation planting, or mixed container.
Being low maintenance, this perennial is easy to grow and care for. It is suitable for growing in USDA zones 5 to 8. Generally left alone by the deer, you can plant this aster in a woodland setting. The Mixed Medley of Asters is ideal for adding to a perennial border or growing in a group for a large swath of color. It also makes a great cut flower.
Mixed Medley of Asters Care
For the best display, Mixed Medley of Asters likes to grow in full sun and in fertile, free-draining soil. When it comes to watering, this aster prefers the soil to be kept moist, especially while getting established. To encourage a stunning array of blooms come late summer, you can apply a general slow-release fertilizer in spring.
Once all the foliage has died back in winter, you can cut the plant back to just above soil level. A mulch of organic matter will help insulate the roots against low temperatures in colder parts.
Mixed Medley of Asters Spacing
When given the right growing conditions, the Mixed Medley of Asters can reach a size of 2 to 3 feet tall and wide. When planting out in a group, a spacing of 2 to 3 feet between plants is ideal.
