New England Aster October 7, 2010

New England Aster

New England Asters have added touches of Lavender to our roadsides since mid-August. They like moist ground, so they do well beside the road. The flower heads are 1 to 2 inches across with small oval leaves that clasp the stem in clusters. Most are 3 to 4 feet tall.

There’s quite a few on the south-end park trails, mostly on the west side. I believe they are native.

That’s probably a safer place to see them up close than a ditch by the road! They are native and range from New England through the Midwest and prairie states. They are also do well in gardens.
