Add some late season punch to your garden with Pink Crush New England Aster. This plant is not your average purplish blue, yellow centered aster. Vibrant deeply fuchsia frilly flowers cover Pink Crush New England Aster giving it a distinct look. This medium-height shrub will celebrate the twilight of the gardening season in style. Pink Crush New England Aster will give some serious fall interest to your garden flowering from early to late fall.

This shrub has a mounded habit that will fit in easily, complimenting any garden in borders or mass plantings. Dark green foliage gives way to its frilly aster flowers in shades of pink and fuchsia. Pink Crush New England Aster late season flowers will bring all the friendly pollinators to your yard and will provide them with much needed late season forage.

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.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
