I love Calico Aster. It grows naturally down by our pond and a few other places and it is so charming! I planted our native Smooth Aster (Symphyotrichum laeve) in my "prairie" bed and it is lovely this year. Love your articles!

The Blue Wood Aster and Heath Aster remind me of my childhood roaming the countryside and woods, picking wildflowers to take back home.
