Lush.  Breathtaking.  Perfection.  These are words we'd use to describe this sweet china aster.  Tower Chamois is a soft, creamy light pink/peach china aster with lush layers of slightly involute petals.  All the elegance and sheer beauty of peonies and mums, but in an easy to grow annual, making them highly sought after.  

We've grown Tower Chamois with herbs, against a trellis with beans, tomatoes, lettuce and zinnias (to name a few) - check out these pics from Jess' 2022 garden for a real life growing journey in both raised beds and ceramic pots.  Pollinators and people love these beauty!  

Plant can reach 30" in height and produce 10-20 stems, staking is recommended to keep the heads from flopping.  They prefer well-draining, fertile soil in full sun.  Add some worm castings or compost to the planting hold and mulch the soil to keep them happy.  Beautiful for your cut flower garden.  Deadheading encourages continued blooms.   

  • Days to Maturity: 110 - 120
  • Companion Plants: Basil, Beans, Catnip, Lettuce, Peppers, Sage, Tomatoes
