Aster Snow Cushion
Aster Snow Cushion features multitudes of sparkling, daisy-like, pure white, semi double flowers with long, narrow petals and attractive, rich golden-yellow centres from August to October. A long-lived, dwarf perennial, it has fresh pinnate mid-green leaves, and looks stunning planted in drifts.
Great value in the late herbaceous border as it is superb for adding colour to the garden during the autumn when many other plants have finished. Fabulous in a container or used at the front of mixed border plantings. Height c 0.5 to 0.74metres and width up to 45cm, this aster will do well in any reasonably moist but well drained conditions in sun or partial shade. Asters can be prone to powdery mildew so once a year may benefit from a fungicidal spray.
