Super pink, we had a double helping of Asters this weekend, first at the Malvern show and second at Picton Nurseries who hold the national collection, just wonderful, so many fantastic colours......

What a shame - I wonder why it didn't like your garden?

Yes and that was the only one I lost, they all came from the same supplier and were all planted the same day!

I just checked in my 'garden' list and they were there in 2007...
