A more positive name…

This Aster aligns its bloom neatly along each stem unlike the clusters of blooms I have shown previously this fall. Meet the Hairy White Oldfield Aster (Symphotrichum pilosum) or it’s other alias which I prefer, Frost Aster. I suppose others may prefer the first name as it pays respect to long-lived native pernnials found in prairies, with the inclusion of “oldfield” in its name. “Frost” reminds me that it’s a hardy flower that the first frosts will not harm; it’s a survivor and for that it has my respect. Either way it’s beautiful and unique in design. For more details click here.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symphyotrichum_pilosum
