CALLISTEPHUS CHINENSIS 'LILLIPUT BLUE MOON'
A superb Chinese Aster, much resembling an exotic sunflower, with huge deepest purple discs which are held on 2 foot stems and arise all over the plant. This fabulous flower which is easy and fast to grow is quite irresistible to butterflies and bees.
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
Common name:Chinese Aster 'Lilliput Blue Moon'
Classification:Half hardy annual
