This is one of the more showy of the wild asters from eastern open woodlands and fields. Often growing to over 5 ft., the plants make quite a show when in bloom each fall. Blooms have lavender rays (petals) and bright yellow centers. Dependable perennial, and great for very late color in a wild garden, when almost everything else is gone.
