Beautiful Barbara, my garden has closed down for the winter and most plants are brown. Luckily I have a lot of structural evergreens, but your Asters are still flowering as if it was mid -summer.

Yes, they are. I've got another one in another shady bed, but it hasn't done as well as this one!

Oh, don't tell me I've named it wrong, Dd. I 'did' wonder. Ah me. SIGH. I can edit it if I got it wrong.

Yes - I agree, but I've been trying to find out if I've named it wrongly! My RHS book is no help...oh dear. :-((

Spritz, it looks like yours has more ray flowers than Dottydaisy's 'Lady in Black', if that's any help.

I think I'll leave it as labelled. My book has a photo which is like it, too. I do have 'Lady in Black' as well - and it looks nothing like this!

Mine is labelled Aster laterifolius 'Horizontalis' Spritz its on page 2 of my pics if you want to have a look?

Thanks, as long as I don't get even MORE confused, Denise! lol.

So pleased to see this as I have one that looks exactly the same and have never known what it was called! I'll look at Drc's as well, just to make sure.

I hope 'YOU' don't get confused as well, Penny! :-/

Well it looks as though it should be called horizontalis if that helps lol. It's lovely:-)

3 Nov, 2010

 

Thanks, Ba. It's staying with that name now. ;-)

It really is a beauty whatever it's name.

That's my new attitude to this one, Janey! LOL.
