Asters are invaluable in the hardy border, adding superb color in the autumn. Very durable and long lived. Richer soils will generally yield taller plants. Frikartii is a Summer Aster blooming until a hard freeze. Good drainage and some winter protection is best for Aster Frikartii. Asters support bees and butterflies right up until season's end.

Pinch back and divide like mums for best display. General rule of thumb is to pinch until 4th of July and not after. Pinching yields better branching and more flowers. Can be divided every 2-3 years in spring. Avoid wet overwintering conditions. Remove spent flowers to prevent reseeding.
