Growing conditions: zone 6, average soil, 3-5 hours of direct sun per day. This aster is a beautiful pink color and easily grew to 3 feet in its first year! I learned the hard way that rabbits will nibble it where they can reach, so it is important to protect it with sprays, repellents, and/or fencing. It will probably require some support, as all tall asters do, unless trimmed back in early June. It goes well with all other asters! It seems to be a magnet in fall for bees and butterflies, too. It's doing well in a partly sunny location (my areas of full sun are limited), about 3-4 feet from a line of trees (separated by a wooden fence). I think the shade of pink is just gorgeous.
