Aster, Matsumoto Striped Adaptive Mix (Organic)

Callistephus chinensis. 85 days.

We received this strain as a supposed purple striped selection and it appears to have been a hybrid. After a few years of selection, all plants are striped but the color varies throughout the population, and we like it that way. They are all semi-double, 2″ wide, white striped flowers that vary on a spectrum from dark purple to light lavender to pink. Plants are tall enough (2 1⁄2′) and stems are long and strong enough to make great cut flowers. They hold well in a vase and their striped petals offer beautiful contrast. Plants are also disease resistant. Asters are a gateway flower to seed saving – choose your favorite color stripe combo and go for it! A dehybridized population from the Matsumoto series, which was developed by Japanese breeders specifically for the cut flower market.
