Chinese Aster 'Valkyrie Yellow'
The palm-sized flowers of this striking variety are unreal. The pale cream petals are long and pointed like stars in the night sky, and the center petal swirls as the flower opens. These beautiful and durable flowers hold up well in the garden and in vases on long, sturdy stems. A must for late summer and fall bouquets.
