Solidaster is a perennial plant that belongs to the Asteraceae family. It is native to Europe and Asia. This plant grows to a height of 1-2 meters and has yellow, orange, or red flowers. The leaves are lanceolate in shape and have serrated margins. Solidaster is commonly used as an ornamental plant in gardens and parks. It is also used in flower arrangements.
Growing solidaster from seed is not difficult, but it does require some patience. The tiny seeds can be sown indoors in late winter or early spring and should be kept moist but not wet. Once they germinate, which can take up to four weeks, the seedlings should be transplanted into individual pots.
Solidaster can also be propagated by division in spring or autumn. The clumps can be dug up and divided into smaller sections, each of which can be replanted. Solidaster prefers full sun but will tolerate partial shade. It will grow in most soil types as long as the drainage is good. Once established, it is drought-tolerant.
To keep solidaster looking its best, it should be cut back hard in early spring. This will encourage fresh new growth and prevent the plant from becoming leggy. Regular deadheading will extend the blooming period.
Solidaster is generally pest and disease-free. However, it can be susceptible to powdery mildew in humid conditions. If this happens, the affected leaves should be removed and the plant should be given more air circulation.
