Late Bloomers

These lovely Asters have been blooming away in my backyard for several weeks now. As the growing year winds down, there is nothing more satisfying–for us and especially for the bees–as fall-blooming Asters. One member of this tribe, Boltonia or “False Aster”, has on occasion bloomed clear into December! Are things looking a bit dull in your yard right now? Think Asters!
