just went to lowes for soil and they had a table full of these plants marked perennials, nothing else. i know nothing about asters, but the flower looks like an aster to me. the leaf almost looks like ruellia, but unless they've come out with a new one, i doubt that's it. i'm posting three pictures. TIA! debi

The leaf looks like Coreopsis, but the flower doesn't. Maybe a type of daisy.

I'd say that's a kick in. There are many of the purple cultivars that look similar, you could always ask them if they knew what ones they carried.LOL

I bought a bunch of "?" marked dahlias from a greenhouse this spring and went back later to see if they might have a guess of what they grew to narrow it down and they said " those were from 2 years ago - who knows anymore" LOL
