Fall Aster - Symphyotrichum oblongifolium

Fall Aster – Symphyotrichum oblongifolium


Late Spring is an odd time for a Fall Aster to be blooming, but this year has been an odd one for blooming flowers as they adjust to severe drought and a mild winter. Some folks refer to the plants as “confused” but they appear to be opportunistic – blooming and reproducing when the conditions seem favorable, whatever time of year it may be on the calendar.
