Needle-petal aster "Romeo" (Callistephus chinensis) belongs to the most popular ornamental plants grown in Central Europe. A multitude of aster varieties that differ in inflorescence form has been bred so far. The needle petal asters sport a semi-spread habit. The plants grow 50 - 70 cm tall. Atop their stiff, straight stems sit large (10 - 12 cm in diameter) inflorescences that consist of thin, needle-like tongue-shaped blooms. The "Romeo" variety produces blooms that take on a beautiful cherry-heather colour. Asters of this variety are first and foremost a decoration of autumn borders and flower beds. Flowers of this variety may also be cut, as they retain freshness in vases for a very long time.

In order for the plants to bloom abundantly and long, you need to provide them with a sunny, warm site with a moderately moist, humous, fertile soil. Regular removing of the wilted blooms is an important care measure that significantly extends the blooming period. "Romeo" aster seeds should be sown in March - April under covers or in April - May directly to the permanent site in 20 x 40 cm spacings. Transplant aster seedlings to the target site in May. Flowers will appear in July and remain on the plants to first autumn frosts.
