photoblog image Autumn Aster

Autumn Aster

I mistakenly called these flowers chicory the other day when showing them with dew. Silly me.  Elizabeth called me on it and I realized some seniors's moment had occurred.  I knew these were asters.  I have chicory in my garden for pete's sake. I did find out though that there are two similar asters.  You will have to guess which this is as I do not know.  Symphyotrichum novi-belgii also known as New York Aster or Symphyotrichum novae-angliae (L.) G L Nesom. (formerly Aster novae-angliae L.), commonly known as the New England Aster or Michaelmas Daisy. They look the same to me.

I believe you every word you may say about plants. Aster are well known on Europe as autumn flowers - the most ones look brown and red-brown. Fine photos!
