Many-Flowered Aster: Condie Nature Refuge

Many-Flowered Aster   © SB 
Late August: Many-Flowered Asters cluster tightly along on side of their curved stems, each white ray floret crowded into another, their centre disks fading from yellow to brown as they age. Each flower is less than half an inch across, but the resulting end-of-stem clusters on this prairie wildflower are vibrantly easy to see.
