Aster ageratoides ‘Starshine’

Japanese Aster

A unique selection that has superb resistance to powdery mildew. This forms a midsized mound of green leaves, bearing loads of small, white yellow-eyed daisies from midsummer onward. Should not require pinching to control height. Long blooming and great for cutting.
