Confusion Reigns ... Again ...

Not only is this sweet little fall-blooming Aster out of sync with its season, I seem to be confused as to its identity. I thought this was Aster novi-belgii 'Daydream' ... but all the descriptions of that one say that the flowers are lavender-blue. So I think this must be Aster dumosus 'Woods Pink'. It's a lovely little plant and I'm happy to see it blooming, although I hope that doesn't mean it won't bloom again in fall. (More confusion.)

That is confusing. What will fall be like after this spring we've had?

Hey, Cindy! It's not unusual for asters to bloom when we've had long spells of cloudy weather in spring. It's all determined by light. Some of my mums are about to bloom! And regardless of "mistake," that one is gorgeous. I'll check it out.
