Guide to Successful Outdoor Garden Aster Production
Most garden asters are cultivated varieties of the fall-blooming wildflower, Aster novibelgii, or Michaelmas daisy. They are native to the United States and can be seen blooming along roadsides during the fall. From the wild types, Danish breeders have selected for new colors and compact shape. As a floriculture crop, they can be grown for cut flowers, an indoor pot crop in four-inch or six inch pots, or an outdoor perennial in six-inch pots or larger. This article covers the commercial production requirements for perennial garden asters.
