Super Aster Customer Reviews
Spreads RapidlyReview by April - Saratoga Springs, UT Posted on 2013-09-17 22:36:26
I wish I would have known that this plant would take over my flower bed. If you want something to fill a large area very quickly, this will do it. I wasn't expecting this and it smothered a lot of my other plants. I am trying to get it out of that bed to put it in a spot I wouldn't mind being filled. The roots are everywhere!
