Possibly the most vivid michaelmas daisy around - luminous bright pink, slightly paler in the centre. Upright stems to 1.2m, flowering in autumn. Easy in ordinary soil in sun.
A similar colour to the better known Symphyotrichum (Aster) novae-angliae 'Andenken an Alma Pötschke' but where that has a weak stem that tends to flop, 'Lachsglut' is better able to look after itself.
Best in a drained, but not dry, soil in full sun and excellent mixed with Miscanthus, Panicum and Helianthus 'Lemon Queen'.
Syn. Aster novae-angliae 'Lachsglut'
