Opus Aster

Callistephus chineses

 

A unique peony flowered aster. Large flowers open with nearly pure white blooms that include a slight hint of pink on the tips. As flowers mature the tips become more vividly colored with a deeper magenta pink. The bushy 2 1/2 foot plants produce an abundance of stems for cutting. An ideal choice for bridal bouquets at late summer weddings.    70 seeds

So Lovely!

These flowers were so easy to grow and were lovely in cut flower bouquets. They were long lasting both on the plant and cut. I am so excited to grow even more of these next season!

An autumn confection!

An elegant addition to the cutting garden. Mine are just beginning to open on Labor Day in zone 3-4. Each plant is producing 3-4 large blossoms on long stems, in less than ideal growing conditions. A lovely, semi-exotic looking flower.
