Gardeners' Notes:

In my Southern Virginia garden, the Tatarian aster has thrived and spread. It is healthy and attractive. It is a good cottage garden plant, but not a good plant for a hyper tidy controlled garden. If spreading is not desired, some sort of landscape barrier strip (several inches into the soil around the plant) should be used. It's the kind of plant that can be dug up to be shared with other gardeners.
