I grew these from seed for the first time this year. The colors and durability of this plant exceeded my expectations. Yes, when your garden is in need of some POP in August, this flower is for you! Great for cutting. Most flowers are purple and pink, the pink in two shades. Just a delight in the garden.

I agree with Jacqueline. I also grew these for the first time this year and they were wonderful. The do bloom later in the season like most asters but the daisy like flowers are so pretty. They grow tall and branching so you can get many flowers just from one main stem. I got white, pink and deep lavender with bright yellow centers. The bees really enjoy them too!
