Description: Asters are dainty, daisy-like flowers with yellow centers distributed over airy sprays. They come in a rainbow of colors including white, pink, hot pink, lavender, red, purple and white. Vase life ranges from five to 14 days.
Special care: Cut stems every two days because they become slimy quickly. Check bouquets for foliage below water line.
