I'm just curious if anyone has Aster lateriflorus 'Lady in Black' in their garden. Is it hardy enough for my Z4a environment?

I got one from a plant swap last year. It made it through winter just fine but I suppose one year isn't long enough to say for sure if it's hardy..

I grew in many years ago, when we had "normal" winters. Had it 4 seasons and through 3 winters, no problem. I was disappointed with its show and performance and yanked it. But as anyone who knows me will say, I am picky when it comes to plants. I didn't have any cold hardiness problems with it though.

Leftwood: what disappointed you about it? What does a plant have to do to gain your acceptance anyway? Dance?
