From National Collection holder Margaret Stone this form has intense reddish pink flowers on a strong plant to 1.2m. August-October. Average soil in sun.
One of a number of similarly bright coloured forms this is generally a little more compact and better branched for us. The centres of the flowers tend to be a rich orange-yellow and get darker as they are pollinated.
Mildew resistant as long as the soil isn't too dry. Try it with a mixture of Panicum and Miscanthus and perhaps some less bright autumn flowering daisies!
Syn. Aster novae-angliae 'Brockamin'
