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
SOLVED: an aster? or something else?
The leaf looks like Coreopsis, but the flower doesn't. Maybe a type of daisy.
It looks like an aster to me but which one is anyone's guess.
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
LOL, oh yeah, like they know.
i'd say dmj got it. i just google imaged stoke's aster and got a perfect match and found a cool new website on florida friendly plants-so, thanks much, and everyone who took the time to look! debi
Ya mean the people at those stores don't know about the plants they sell? How can that be???? 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
hah, they wouldn't have known if they were from two minutes ago.
Don't worry, I told them know one is going to buy ? dahlias - I'll buy some for 1/2 off. They agreed.
