Suggestions for Oct to May flowering plants

Glendale, AZ(Zone 9b)

I'm looking for ideas for some flowering plants similar to the "New England Asters" that were a subject in Dave's Garden Newsletter. Really don't want them quite as tall or wide as the New England Aster, but a bit smaller. Sure like the blooms on those Asters though. Any ideas for something similar?

If it is simply winter blooming flowers that you are looking for you might want to explore hellebore/Helleborus. I had some small success twith some of them some years ago . A select few of them may be suitable/survive here . There are a number of books on the subject of winter gardening.
