 It's Wildflower Wednesday here on the Blog!  In my area I usually only see Heath Asters around.  While out riding one day in October, these caught my eye as I rode past due to their purple color.  These are Aromatic Asters.  They bloom in September and October normally.  These were very short due to growing along a sidewalk and being mowed fairly often.  They normally are 6 to 18 inches tall and these were only about 2 and spread out.  They spread by creeping rhizomes.
