What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Great Design Plant: Aster
That's interesting: In medieval Europe, people burned asters to ward off serpents (it was thought to make them take flight). The mythology continues today, as some believe that burning aster leaves will keep snakes away. See more guides to great design plants
