Aster novae-angliae "Alma Potschke"
h, this is an aster I really like for its cultivar name, of course, but ali for its bright pink, dailsy-like flowers in late summer/early fall that you can see from a mile away. "Alma Potschke" grows to about three feet tall, with loads of long lasting blooms. You can pinch this one up until early July, promoting branching, more blooms, and a more compact plant. But who wants a compact aster? I like the plant to stand as tall as possible so as to be as showy as possible, and I don't see how the ones I have can have more blooms than they already do. Divide every two-three years. Sun in Zones 3-8. Butterfly Magnet. Quarts.
