What size will these asters be?


I have two asters that I want to plant but I don't know the exact variety/cultivar so I have no idea how big they can get. They don't have tags but have a small label saying "A Aster Novi Belgii C". Googling around those can be any size..  

Maybe someone can tell from the pics?

    I've got 3 clumps of Aster Novi Belgii - one pink (that looks like yours), one dark blue and one mauve - they get to between 2-3ft ish the labels on the pots of mine had about the same info as yours - but they were cheap :)
    The first few flowers are out so it must be autumn - just as summer arrives at last :)

    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Put the label pic the right side up. Not really the right time of year to plant asters, but...

    You can plant anything in a pot at any time of year - as long as the ground isn't frozen, or waterlogged. Asters wouldn't care for waterlogged ground anyway...
    I have a bright pink Aster, which was meant to be something else, but I kept it. It's a few years old now, and gets to around three feet. Not quite flowering yet, but they're good value plants. Flower for ages. 

    You can always move them anyway @Dedekind,  if they outgrow the space you put them in  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
