My secret to plant weed control is newspaper. Pull out cut back as much of the plant you can then cover the area with a thick layer of newspaper and leave for a few months. You can even pile up a whole lot of leaf litter under the newspaper and you will be left with a nice rich compost for growing new plants in. :)
Most asters are extremely bug resistant and are used to keep bugs away. Besides butterfly larva, there aren't many insects that will eat an aster. The best way that I know is to pull them out by hand.

I do not know much about plants, except for which ones I like, so this may be a tedious answer. Firstly, we live in USDA zone 5, and the flower in question has already come and gone. I have been living is this house for two years now, and this flower is always the first to bloom, the snow was still on the ground this year when it came up. I did not plant our flower garden, it consists of perenials which were here when we moved in, all we do is mow the lawn, but recently I have taken an interest in gardening, and have identified somme of the flowers the previous owner planted, including may many tulips, lilacs, damask violets, hydrangeas of unknown variety, bleeding hearts, daylilies, etc.
On to the flower in question. It blooms in early spring, once again, we are in USDA zone 5, and this plant begins to wilt as asoon as the sun comes out full blast. She lasts about a week, a soft pink color, the flowers are similar in configuration to snapdragons, or maybe foxglove, or gladiolus, on a single stalk, which is quite sturdy until the sun comes out in full force. The leaves are long, thin smooth leaves, no teeth or hair, similar to the leaves on the daylilies (if I recall correctly, daylilies have yet to bloom this year). And that is all I remember of it. It really is beautiful when it blooms, I would love to know what she is so I can plant some on the other side of our home, which I think will be more appropriate, as she will get more shade there and may last longer. Thank you for your efforts!
(also, if i could see a picture I would surely be able to identify it!)

I have a plant that is a shrub. It has thick leaves around it like a lily would but has 4 stalks growing out of it. I have a second plant just like this but the stalks are not as tall. on the top of the stalk which they range in height (6inches- 2 1/2 foot) there is an orange/peach colored flower that seems to be blooming (4-6inches of flowers). My friend said it was a yucca but ive been looking at photos and it doesnt seem to match up.

Most indoor plants can be grown outdoors depending on the local climate. Calla Lilies do well in a sunny to partly shaded garden bed and require minimal care.

When I lived in Houma,Louisiana my grandmother had a tree or big bush in her yard and it produced a flower that was shaped like a miniature banana and smelled heavenly. I have't been able to find out the name of it, no one seems to know. Can you help me out?
Answer This Question
April 20, 2012
No way that Bird of Paradise looks like a miniature banana, I've seen those up close. It ain't the Citronella - doesn't smell that good. If it looks like a PEELED mini banana, then it has to be a type of honeysuckle. I've got a couple next to my house. It's smell competes with the Lily of the Valley - it's wonderful!
I could only guess. Here are some names to plug into Google images. Chamaecrista fasciculata Mina Citronella Dicentra scandens Bird-of-Paradise
Frustration! Frustration!
Why is trying to upload a flower image so frustratingly difficult. There is no pathway to doing this. I had thought that this might be a site worth joining, but now I am not so sure. You really ought to make things easier for us. (see my previous identification query).
Answer This Question
April 06, 2012
It is difficult right now, I guess they are planning a few revisions this spring, so we'll see... The trick is to have an image sized down to 800 pixels or less, then click the Add tab, then click the Add Plant link, then scroll down to almost the bottom and press Save. Besides that problem, it's a pretty fun place to learn about plants. If you have any questions etc. let me know.

I have yellow flowers and cannot seem to find out what they are - I would like to get more! They bloom in the Houston "winter" right up to March some years. On 18-24" stem, with multiple small bunches of buds along the stem and at the end. The flower opens in a spiral, and the petals overlap. Short stamen but visible. Very bright yellow.
