Elliott’s Aster

17 Nov

Anyone who spends time out on our lakes during the fall season has seen this flower before. It’s lavender daisy like flowers cover the 3′ -4′ tall bushes and look like purple clouds rimming the shoreline. They grow in wet shoreline areas of lakes, ponds, canals, and roadside ditches. Right now, State Rd 561 just north of Astatula is a good spot to see these blooming wonders.

    Is it OK for me to use this photo (with full credit) in the SC Native Plants Journal? SC Native Plant Society is a non-profit environmental organization in South Carolina, which is distributed to our members.
