Aster

mikeinmo(Z6 MO)July 21, 2011

Does anyone have a pic of a full grown Aster? I ordered one from an online catalog that is pitifully small. I bought a bigger one from a nursery and it seems to be struggling in the heat. I planted it early June.

there are roughly 180 species within the genus according to wikipedia.. that supreme source.. lol ...

without a fuller latin name.. its hard to give you any specific information ...

what mail order source did you use??? one of the better ones.. or a bargain shop

june planting is on the far side of proper planting time.. and sometimes.. obtaining good stock ... but it should be within the realm of OK .. with proper tlc ....

Perennials don't usually do much above-ground their first year. Water if they wilt. They are busy growing roots for now.
