Aster Growing and Maintenance Tips

Grows best in an average to moist soil, but tolerates a wide range of soil types. Best grown in full or partial sun and is drought resistant once established. Although not required, pruning foliage in early summer will promote more branching and result in a bushier habit. Excellent disease resistance.
