September Star

Prairie Aster, aster turbinellis, comes to life just before the beginning of fall, in September; I am particularly fond of its purplish-blue coloration and it seems to be the perfect flower for hair-pinning, the making of floral wreaths and bracelets.

Some other perks: asters are relatively easy to maintain, for they require only partial sunlight and require no fussing or pruning, a testament to their status as wildflower, stand-alone and easily rooted in many different types of soil.
