Wildflowers Of North America
I’m NOT obsessed with photography. Well…… maybe a little. Just enough to be willing to try and balance an umbrella over the camera in the rain while trying to focus on a purple weed. :-)
The yellow of the background is goldenrod and there’s more of it this year than I think I’ve ever seen before.
This is a New England Aster (Aster novae-angliae) just opening and was taken in Southern Ontario.
“A robust, hardy perennial native to the northeastern portion of the United States. The large rosy-lilac to deep purple flowers have distinct yellow centers found clustered at the end of branching stems. The long leaves clasp around the stiff, hairy stems which are numerous. Prefers full sun in moist, rich soil.”
