Bolton's Aster Growing and Maintenance Tips

Grows best in a moist, rich soil, tolerating conditions in both extremes, wet or dry. Grow in full sun. To maintain a tidier growth habit, lightly prune until mid-July. Pruning will encourage more branching and more flowers. Roots can be aggressive, so avoid planting too close to other perennials.
