-15% Alpine Aster (Aster Alpinus Albus) 100 seeds (#1550)

Beautiful white daisies cover it early in the season. These are borne on low-growing plants that are ideal for containers and rock gardens. It is easy to grow but tends to be short-lived. It will gently self-sow but the seedlings are not true to parent.
Unlike many aster species, the delicate, pastel daisies of alpine aster bloom in late spring and summer.
The small, oval leaves of alpine aster are green to gray-green. Lots of bright daisies with fine ray petals and golden centers appear in spring or early summer. Bees are the key pollinators but butterflies also visit them. Fluffy, white seedheads are produced in mid to late-summer.
Full to partial sun and sharply drained soil are essential for this carefree alpine. It will not tolerate hot or humid temperatures, so it's best reserved for northern gardens. Late in the season it may develop powdery mildew or rust. Place this early season beauty in rock, trough or alpine gardens.
