Japanese Aster Growing and Maintenance Tips

Grows best in a moist to average, well-drained soil, in full sun to partial shade. Foliage may get brown-tipped in prolonged hot, dry summers. Variegation will fade in the summer months. Trimming back foliage in early summer will promote new, variegated, leaf growth.
