Our neighbor has this plant in his front yard, and I finally got a chance to ask him about it. He told me that he had one in his backyard that died immediately, and that a friend gave him this one. He planted it in full sun, hoping it would do better, and it has. It's flourished as the weather has gotten cooler. Those little flowers look like miniature mums. As you can see, the bees love it. I totally want one, but I don't know what it's called. Can anybody enlighten me? Thanks.

So, in layman's terms, are we talking Aster?
