Aster Pompon Blue Callistephus Chinensis is one of the most unusual annual asters. Aster Pompon seeds germinate fast and the plant establishes itself quickly. This variety of China Aster grows up to 20 inches tall and blooms with extra large, uniquely shaped, fragrant, blue aster flowers that resemble pompons. The fragrant blooms appear from early summer to fall and attract bees and butterflies.
Aster Pompon Blue is one of the best flowers for cutting gardens. Pompon Aster grows well in containers and adds eye-catching color to borders and flower beds. Callistephus Chinensis prefers full sun and moist well-drained soil, but the plant tolerates partial sun and average soil conditions. The sturdy stems and showy flowers make Aster pompon one of the best cut flowers.
