Mistflower


Another beautiful weed in bloom during August and September. This plant is showing off purplish blue flower heads but can sometimes be seen with white flowers. It is a member of the aster family and can do well in perennial flower beds, just remember that it is spread by seed and underground creeping.

  1. Oh how pretty. Did you let the green pony at it? I had some asters a few years ago, don't remember why they are gone.

  3. I have never seen that. We have something that looks like the top one in gold called ever lasting. I dried some.
