It's another Wildflower Wednesday here on the Blog.  This is another that I see fairly commonly but I only recently discovered exactly what type it was.  This is an Aromatic Aster.  We have several Aster varieties here in Kansas and the difference is mostly in color but there are other subtle differences as well like the leaf shape and how they tend to flower, either single on a stem or clustered.  Asters are in the Daisy family.  This variety is one of the last Aster species to bloom and you can find into autumn.  I found this one in early October on Konza Prarie.
