Holy Heck Batman! What Happened to My Asters!!!!
I haven't been in my perennial garden for a few days so when I went in last night to do some weeding, I was shocked by the damage to my asters caused by the chrysanthemum lacebug. Holy heck is a toned-down version of what I really said. These lacebugs had totally obliterated the three plants (two different cultivars) in my beds. My only option at this time is to cut them to the ground and hope we get enough rain to push new growth so that they bloom this year sometime before Christmas!
