Matsumoto Asters are bright, cheery flowers with blooms much larger than their spray aster cousins. With flower heads approximately 2" across, Matsumoto Asters are more substantial than traditional filler flowers adding instant fullness and texture to any style floral arrangement. Our Purple Matsumoto Asters are a deep, bold purple with a bright yellow center that pairs well with Sunflowers, Gerbera Daisies, Roses, Lisianthus, Snapdragons, and Lilies. It also looks good mixed with its cousin - Aster Solidago and Baby's Breath. Purple Matsumoto Asters are hardy flowers, sporting 3 - 5 blooms per stem - making them a beautiful and economical choice to add volume to your arrangements. Matsumoto Asters have a relatively long vase life of 7 - 10 days with proper care.
Wholesale Purple Matsumoto Asters
Our Wholesale Purple Matsumoto Asters are cut and shipped straight from the farm - and we 100% guarantee it's quality and freshness. Once you receive your Purple Matsumoto Asters remove as much green leafy foliage as possible from the bottom of the stems (leaving the foliage around the base of the lowest flowers), cut about 1/2 - 1" off the bottom of the stems and place in fresh water. Matsumoto Asters usually do not need time to open, but will need hydration. It is perfectly normal for the flowers to look thirsty or "tired" upon arrival. They will perk up once they receive a "fresh cut" to their stems and have time to drink up fresh water. To maximize their vase life and to keep them looking their best, ensure all foliage that falls below any water lines is removed; aster foliage can become slimy when immersed in water. This is easily prevented by removing all leaves that fall in or near water levels. We recommend you receive your Matsumoto Asters 2-3 days before your event.
