Carmine Red Kickin® Aster

Asters bloom once most flowering plants are finished for the year, which is why the brilliant tones of Carmine Red are so useful. Each magenta-red, daisylike bloom is accented by a shining golden center-bold fall hues that rival the bright colors of your summer garden. Carmine Red is part of the new KICKIN® Aster series, a line of improved perennial asters. These varieties require exceptionally little maintenance with no pruning and no deadheading.  They will grow into a dense, compact mound completely washed in colorful blooms. They form an easy, tidy-looking edge for a front border, and are a nice size for patio pots. They are not fussy about soil as long as they are planted in a spot with good air circulation and plenty of sunshine. Attracts butterflies, but not deer.  Aster 'Carmine Red'

Other Notes:

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others. Our customers have suggested that they would rather wait to receive their order as complete as possible. If you would like to receive part of your order ahead of time, please reach out to our customer service department and we can accommodate. Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.
