Aster 'Benary Mix'

Aster 'Benary Mix'
Easter daisy
This is one of the best tall varieties of perennial Asters I have grown, with colours ranging from white to pink and magenta. The flower stems are strong and self supporting. 
A little bit of mildew appeared on the leaves during a rainy spell earlier in the month but after cutting off the affected leaves the plants recovered quickly. 
Autumn is the time for dividing perennials as there is still enough warmth in the soil for new plants grown by division to become established and put down new roots before winter.
