An Heirloom plant, Paeony Asters have huge double blooms that resemble a Peony. The Paeony Aster has a much rounder, fuller flower than other types of Asters. Needle Asters are very rare and unique, making them very desirable and hard to find.
In the garden, they will attract bees & butterflies, or you can enjoy them indoors. Their long stems and long-lasting flowers make them an excellent choice for cut flower arrangements.
