Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
A mound-forming herbaceous perennial, Aster ericoides 'Schneetanne' produces hundreds of pretty daisy-like white flowers on lax stems from early to late autumn. The informal habit of Heath Asters and late season of interest make them perfect for prairie style planting, cottage garden borders or wildlife gardens where they're an attractive source of late season pollen and nectar for bees and butterflies. They also make excellent groundcover plants in a sunny spot. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 1m (39").

Flowering Months
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. In late autumn, cut back stems of Michaelmas daisies to ground level. New shoots will be produced in clumps the following spring.
Plant asters in a fertile, moist, well drained soil. Choose a position towards the front of the border in full sun.
