Description:
Aster paludosus (blue flowers) narrow leaves; From Natural Gardens (pages 432-433): "The genus of flowering herbs in North Carolina having the largest number of species, for no less than 60 occur within the state. Perennials, 1-8 ft. high with the purple, light purplish or white rayed heads borne in open or sometimes rather compact clusters above; rays usually numerous, over 10; central or tubular flowers usually yellow in color changing in age to reddish brown or purplish; calyx bristles mostly in a simple series about the corolla: leaves alternate, various. Nearly all of our habitats have aster representatives. The blooming period for the genus is late summer and fall. Only a few species need be given special mention: the grass-leaved bog or savannah aster (A.paludosus)."
