China Aster, Crego Mix
Callistephus chinensis

0.2 grams per packet, approximately 100 seeds

Sow 5 ounces per 1,000 square feet, 13 pounds per acre

This cheery cool-season annual puts out doubled flowers in red, pink, white and purple from July through September.  China Aster needs consistently moist soil and prefers full to partial sun. It's a good idea to replant it in a different spot in the garden each season to deter its pests. 

China Aster is not frost tolerant, so start indoors six weeks before the last frost and set out after danger of frost has passed, or direct sow at that time.  Germinates best in soil 70-75 degrees F, with some light.
