China Aster Crego Mix is a wonderful flower for the pollinator garden. The plumes on its petals give it an appearance of shaggyness, but don't let that fool you - these flowers are beautiful! They come in shades from purple to white with deeper rose and pink hues as well. And they last through summer into early fall before many annuals stop blooming altogether. 500mg ~ 250 seeds.

Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before transplanting into the garden. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-80°F. Transplant to the garden 1-2 weeks after your average last frost date. Aster is more sensitive to transplant shock so carefully set in the ground. Or, plant seeds directly in the garden after average last frost date when soil temperature is at least 65°F. Harvest Fresh: As florets begin to open. Place immediately in water. Harvest Dried: When blooms are fully open.

Crego Mix

I was really excited to purchase these seeds and to purchase them from a small business - unfortunately, they did not grow. I’m pretty sad about it because we cared for them and I was looking forward to them. I gave two stars instead of one because shipping was fast and the packaging was nice.
