In the '40's and 50's, my mother always had plants she called astermums in the garden. They were fall bloomers, and looked something like daisies, with a yellow center, and one layer of very slightly purple petals. I loved them. I have never been able to find any. Can someone tell me the "real" name for these plants, and where I might be able to buy them. I would be very grateful.

I think that used to be a name for asters; try searching for Comet Asters. The specific varieties may just be hard to find now. Visit this link and do a find on mums: http://www.fullbooks.com/Ethel-Morton-s-Enterprise2.html
