Aster Frikatii Monch - What are the options

Posted by boday 3/4 (My Page) on

In Winnipeg, I'm getting varied information on this Aster. Anything from zone four to six. I've noticed people on this forum talking about this Aster a while back re seeds. My question is - Will it survive our climate or should it be treated as an annual? Now I have nor problem with plants rated zone four.

RE: Aster Frikatii Monch - What are the options

boday, I've grown this aster for about 20 years and it's never winterkilled even in winters with little or no snow covering. It flowers over a long period of time, though does not produce a mass of blooms at any one time. The plant makes a good companion to hydrangeas such as 'Little Lamb' and 'Lime Light'.
