Good plan Jessie. I wonder if you trimmed the aster back it might help it out. Also, I have golden rod identical to yours in two spots. Its considered a weed here, but it looks so nice and I love the height of it. @jessielynn
@columbiariver I'm very excited for it! Unfortunately my plan was to completely to start over in this overgrown area where jewelweed and these asters ended up growing. It makes me feel better that they will be replaced with other natives though.
