Aster novae-angliae 'KICKIN Pink Chiffon' is a bushy, compact New England Aster which produces a profusion of semi-double, daisy-like, pastel pink flowers with a golden button center, from late summer to mid fall. The blooms are so abundant that they literally blanket the plant and cover the foliage of finely textured green leaves. Ideal to add a great splash of color in the late season garden, this eye-catching beauty is terrific in containers or near the front to middle of the border. Easy to grow, long lived, it does not require any human intervention to maintain its neat habit.

  • Typically grows up to 24-36 in. tall and wide (60-90 cm).
  • Thrives in full sun in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Moist, rich soils are preferred. Provide good air circulation to avoid foliage diseases such as powdery mildew.
  • Vital ingredient of late summer and fall borders, cottage gardens or containers
  • Asters are a must if you are trying to attract birds or butterflies. Deer and rabbit resistant!
  • No need to pinch back this compact aster to control plant height unless an unusually low plant height is required.
