The award-winning series, compact and heavy-blooming

Love the compact, heavy-blooming Astis? We do too, which is why we're delighted to offer all 3 colors—including AAS-winning white, in an economical mix. A very heat- and drought-tolerant variety, Asti is so long-blooming that you may just have to move these plants from the cutting garden to front-and-center in the annual bed.

The 3 colors in this series combine beautifully. All boast a deep blue center, surrounded by long petals of white, lavender-blue, or deep rosy purple. The flowers reach about 2 inches wide, with tightly-spaced petals held straight out on long, wiry stems.

Perfect for cutting, these blooms also look good on the plant, thanks to a more compact, tight habit. Expect the flowers to keep coming from early summer all the way into fall, especially if you cut or deadhead the blooms promptly to encourage new bud formation.

Asti White won an All-America Selection award 2008 for its long bloom and great tolerance of heat and drought, and both Lavender Shades and Purple boast the same great flower power and garden strength. Each of the 3 colors is available separately in seed form—the first African Daisy to offer individual colors.

In bloom these plants measure 18 to 20 inches high, and they grow about 2 feet wide. Sun-loving and very forgiving of harsh conditions, they deserve a place of honor in your garden.
