Hairy Calico Aster

Hairy Calico Aster

Symphyotrichum lateriflorum

Aster lateriflorus


An interesting fall bloomer.  The yellow centre disk of the dainty white or faded purple blooms begins to mature, changing to a purplish-bronze colour. One plant, and sometimes even a solitary blossom changes colour to produce a calico effect.
