Other info: 2013 - customer reports that her flowers (petals) were white instead of green. I have direct sown seeds twice to test and take photos, but planting too late in spring season when weather was too hot and dry, I got no plants. -- Finally in 2014 I sowed some seeds direct into a 2-gallon nursery container. Germinated well, but I didn't manage to get photo. I remember looking at the flowers again after they had been flowering for 2 or 3 weeks, and I thought they appeared to be a dingy-white, which was actually just the center of the flower, and not the petals. If white petals were produced, they were produced very early on in flowering, and quickly fell off.

'Hulk'
** Aster Hulk flower **


Not Available for 2017.
Germination: Easy germination. Seeds may be started indoors 2-4 weeks prior to last spring frost. Sow seeds in container on good seed starting mix (or they seem to do even better when using straight vermiculite moistened -- that's what I use when I start seed indoors). Do not cover seeds or cover seeds lightly. Moisten mix. Place container inside sandwich baggie. Place container in a location at 70°F. Germination should begin in 6-10 days. Remove baggie once germination begins. Otherwise sow seeds direct to garden location after last spring frost, or may be grown in large containers.
