On this plant I have to disagree with Mr. Thomas. In the Netherlands the performance of this plant is not very convincing. If the plant survives our wet winters it usually produces a few flowering stems that almost always flop to all sides. I think there are better asters than this one. Why this plant deserves an AGM is something that I don't understand. Does this plant do well in the UK?ReplyDelete
