About Me Avid Gardener
Aster is a wonderful late bloomer. It grows in fair to poor soil here. It gets all day sun and usually does well on just normal rainfall. It grows tall and green at the rear of my garden all summer and is loaded with beautiful flowers starting in late August. It is extremely attractive and I will bet you will get tons of compliments. I live in western PA, zone 5. Aster is the birth flower for September.
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.
