Creative breeding has made this semi-hardy perennial suitable for production in 4-6-in. pots as well as patio containers and garden displays. Astra produces long-lasting, star-shaped blooms available as semi-double or single flowers measuring 2-3 inches in diameter. Continuous balloon-shaped buds mean Astra has an exceptionally long shelf life, providing continuous flowering throughout the season. Astra’s heat tolerance makes production possible during the course of the summer without problems.
