Aster

There are several types of asters that are native to this area. We have New England, silky, aromatic, purple-stemmed, sky-blue, heath, and smooth blue, which I believe is the one pictured above. All of the asters have similar looking blooms, the only difference between most seems to be the specific size and shape of the petals, and all of them are a blue to purple color except for the heath with is a white aster.
