Symphyotrichum cordifolium (Asteraceae)
(sim-fee-AH-tri-cum cord-eh-FOE-lee-um)
Blue Wood Aster

Loose panicles of pale-blue to violet bloom add a coolness to the lingering heat of early fall. Flowering stalks tower above tufts of dark-green basal foliage. Beautiful and easy-peasy in the woodland garden; leave seed to naturalize in tough-to-fill areas. (Formerly Aster cordifolius.)
