Comments about High Country Gardens Aster lateriflorus Lady in Black:
I really enjoy this aster which frames my front yard fence. I live in Centennial, CO and it has done very well these last three years. I wish I could order at least one more plant but you are out of stock. Come September, i have hundreds of honey bees "eating" all day long so I'm sure these asters are supporting a neighbors honey business.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
