Aster 'Small-Ness'

The alpine asters are short, clump-forming perennials, with large daisy flowers, usually pink or pale purple with yellow centres. Their stature and liking for well-drained soil make them obvious rock garden species. They include the European species Aster alpinus, and many other species from North America and Asia.

Aster 'Small-Ness' is a plant we were given, which is believed to be a three-way hybrid, (Aster laevis x A. lateriflorus) x A. dumosa 'Prof. Anton Kippenberg’. But it is an outstandingly good, low daisy, which covers itself with unbelievable numbers of light pinkish blue, red-centred flowers, and multiplies well from cuttings. It is vigorous, dought-tolerant and completely resistant to mildew.
