Pink Crush New England Aster Care
This shrub prefers a location in full sun but will also tolerate part sun and shaded locations. Full sun will promote an abundance of flowers. Pink Crush New England Aster is easy to care for, water well until established when it will require average watering needs. Hardy from zone 3a-8b, the shrub will reward some low maintenance initial care and establishment with years of perennial growth and blooms!
To promote a bushy, compact habit covered in flowers, pinch the plant back as a young plant 1-2 times up until early July. The plant should stand-alone but may benefit from staking until fully mature. Plants can be left after blooming through winter for pollinator habitat or winter interest, cut back in early spring. For a tidier winter look, cut back asters in late fall after flowers and foliage have died.
Pink Crush New England Aster Spacing
This shrub is on the small to medium height range reaching 20 to 24 inches with a densely bushy spread of 34 – 38 inches. In mass plantings space plants about 34 inches apart.
