2. Kickin® Carmine Red
KICKIN® 'Carmine Red' produces magenta red flowers with a gold button center. Their habit is superb, forming a very full, bushy, relatively short mound of finely textured green foliage. From late summer through mid-fall, every inch of the foliage is completely covered in flowers, creating a huge splash of color that is so needed in the garden late in the season. 9C-South Click to display 24"-36" 24"-36" 5-9 8" Green
3. Pot 'n Patio Mix
The Pot & Patio Aster mix is fast growing variety with the dwarf plants reaching their maximum 6" after only a few months. The flowers grow to 3" across making them the perfect variety for planters or pots. 8D-South Click to display n/a n/a   6" 6"-8" n/a Flat

4. Bridal Veil
White flowers cover finely-textured branches that arch gracefully and can be up to two feet high and four feet wide. This early fall bloomer usually peaks in October. Use as a border plant at the edge of the garden, cascading over rocks or walls or on a slope. Drought tolerant and powdery mildew-resistant.

A hybrid aster developed at Chicago Botanic Garden. This clonal selection resulted from a cross made in 2002 with the groundcover Aster ericoides 'Snow Flurry' as the seed parent. The pollen parent is unknown.

8. Star of Billions
