Plant Features

The Peter III Aster Plants offer the same disease resistance and rich, dark green foliage of its Yoder cousins, but with the most remarkable bluish-lavender, sometimes blushing pink, double blossoms. You know, the color of those summer after-the-storm lavender sunsets, wow. Asters are the reliable performers of fall gardens. They do best when planted in full sun locations in well-drained soils. Deer and rabbits seldom browse asters; butterflies flock to their flowers and wild bird love the small seeds.

Companion Planting: Coreopsis, Fuchsia, Grasses, Kniphofia, Monarda, Phlox, Rudbeckia, Salvia, Sedum

I am extremely happy with the flowers I received. They are the largest from any online grower. They ship and arrive guickly in excellent condition which is amazing considering the temperature where I live has been in the high 90s to 100 degrees.

Peter III Fall Aster Plant

I started last year buying from GrowJoy. I bought two mums. They have double and are beautiful. I am sure The current plant will also be perfect. GrowJoy gets the plants to the client very quickly and are perfect when they arrive because GrowJoy has a special container for each plant and they are in water and closed when they got to me. I am so happy, I love buying from this company because they are trustworthy. I will continue buying, I wish I had more area.
