Product Description

China Aster ‘Rose of Shanghai Light Blue’
Callistephus chinensis

The tallest China aster we’ve ever grown, these towering, waist-high plants produce a bumper crop of giant, soft lavender-blue flowers with cheerful golden centers. These beautiful and durable blooms hold up wonderfully in both the garden and the vase. Giant, slightly nodding flower heads ride atop long, strong stems, making them an excellent cut flower and a must grow for late summer and autumn bouquets.
