Aster – Mönch
We grow a very old traditional aster called King George. Also known as the Italian Aster, the leaves are larger and so are the mauve daisy flowers, they only grow to 2 feet, do not need staking and are marvellously resistant to mildew. They provide such a great display at the end of the year when they shine out. They have proved to be vigorous and robust, but do not like their roots to be too wet.
