Alpine Aster (Aster Alpinus Trimix) 50 seeds (#1950)

Early in the season, beautiful daisies in shades of pink, lavender, white and violet cover the alpine asters in this mix. The mounded, low-growing plants are ideal for container culture and rock gardens. The plants are easy to grow but tend to be short-lived.
Unlike many aster species, the delicate, pastel daisies of alpine aster bloom in late spring and summer. This unusually cold tolerant perennial is native across the far reaches of Canada, Alaska and Eurasia. Wild populations grow along montane river valleys, mountain slopes, tundra and rocky coasts. Some garden-worthy cultivated varieties have been bred, which are all considerably tough and well-adapted to cold climates and rocky terrain. Habit varies, some are prostrate and others bushy and mounded.
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.
Place this early season beauty in rock, trough or alpine gardens.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Sow seeds from March to June inside or directly into the soil (after the last frost).
1. Fill a pot or seed trays with potting soil and dampen it with water until it is moist. Press two to four aster seeds into the damp soil. Do not cover the seeds with soil as they need light to germinate.
2. Place the pot or seed tray in the refrigerator or outdoors in temperatures of around 0-+4C for two to three weeks (recommended).
3. Remove the aster seeds from the refrigerator or their current outdoor location and place them in a climate with an air temperature of at least +18+20C. Leave the asters there for two to three weeks and they should sprout.
4. Transplant the sprouts to individual pots filled with potting soil or into your garden.
Germination time - 3-74 weeks.
