China Aster Royal Purple Mix Callistephus chinensis
This giant beauty produces a bumper crop of large quill-petaled flowers that ride atop long, strong stems. The unusual mix of frosted royal purple blooms resemble sea anemones and are often referred to as tiger paw asters. A must grow novelty, these eye-catching blooms look like they belong in the ocean and are a favorite with everyone who visits our farm.
