Aster Lady Coral Lavender seeds - Fluffy discs in the most perfect dusty lavender grey.
Approx 20 Seeds
I simply adore asters – the true late summer queens. flower heads of every size, some like petite pompoms, other like big shredded balls of ribbon, and finally big puffy balls of incurved petals almost mistaken for ‘Mums. if you couldn’t love them anymore (I actually can’t) asters have the most insane vase life (7-10 days). These laugh in the face of Dahlias.

Notes From The Garden
Don’t forget asters are late summer flowering, shortening day lengths initiates flowering. These will flower well into the autumn up to the first hard frost.
