Aster, Raydon's Favorite is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this aster I have enjoyed Raydon's aster in many gardens since I move frequently. This aster is one of my "must have" plants. From the small thing it was when I got it in the spring it has spread to over 2 feet and is loaded with buds.
