Detailed Product Info

Like all China Asters, this makes a great cut flower. Blooms reach 24" in height and 4" in diameter at maturity-highly dramatic!

This flower has a long, involved name that reflects its long, involved journey from Asia to your garden. Let's break it down. The Latin shows that this is not a true aster but a flower originally from China. "Tiger Paw" represents the claw-like incurving quilled petals, and suggests the White Tiger constellation in Chinese Astrology that symbolizes the west and autumn. Result: This flower crossed the seas from East to West to bring its tiger claw petals to your late summer and fall garden. Let it roar!
