Flax-leaved Aster

Flax-leaved Aster starts to flower pretty early for an aster, usually in late August. The leaves are very narrow and have scratchy-scabrous hairs, giving them an interesting feel. Look for this beautiful native in sandy black oak savannas in northern Indiana. Photographed on September 2, 2014 in Starke County, Indiana.

No comments! Heresy! Great photos, Keith, of a wonderful plant.

Thank you Justin. This mitigates my disappointment to some extent.
