I like 'Theme Master', don't think I'd ever "like" Johnson Grass. It's pretty, but a bit too aggressive. That Aster looks like Aster ericoides or Heath Aster.
We are not as far apart on the Johnson grass as you might think. I just found it a lot easier to like than get rid of! It likes Roundup a lot. So far the most effective kill strategy with Roundup has been to cut the plant to near ground level, wait a few days for new growth to start and new runners to emerge from the ground, then spray. Some runners usually emerge several feet away.
Prechate the ID's on the aster. We also have a native lavender aster that blooms earlier than those in photo. It is not as prolific.
Look, I have some yellow asters too! (belly laughin') Can you ID the plant?
