Aster, Purple Dome is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So pretty. I bought two plants last year and planted in the fall. This year they grew in nicely and bushy and are currently in full bloom.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So tiny These plants just arrived and they are tinyl. I imagine they will probably survive and eventually be fine (since they're perennials), they might even flower a little this year. Another reviewer said they received a plant on the verge of flowering, so this is what i was expecting--a mature plant. These are seedlings. Next time I'll just order seeds and start them myself. Not impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shipped beautifully! I just opened the box. The plants were very well packaged but easy to remove without damaging them. I ordered four plants and they all arrived in excellent condition. They are strong, well-rooted and covered with healthy foliage. One already has purple blooms peaking out. There were just a few leaves at the bottom that needed to be removed from a couple of plants. That's to be expected. I will let them rest in my kitchen window for a day or two then plant them in front where they will get morning and early afternoon sun. I can't wait to see how they do. I know they will make lots of friends with my neighbors. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful asters Purchased these last spring. Were quick growing and were in full bloom by late summer. This spring I thought that they were dead! Then I cleaned off dead growth and they started growing bigger that the were last year. Now this summer they again are full of bloom . Cant wait till they bloom again. Oh also the butterflies love these and are drawn to them. Good purchase exactly what I wanted!
