Sunday Flowers: Alpine Aster

Sunday, July 25, 2010

These just look like purple daisies to me, but they're called the Alpine Aster. They grow up to 6-12in. and usually bloom in the spring & summer right here in the United States. It has a long life span relative to most other plant species and a slow growth rate.

The petals usually bloom in lavender, purple, violet, dark pink colors.
