Wild Pink Asters

The Aster is September's flower of the month. The name comes from the Greek word for Stars. The violet, pink and white shades are most popular.

The Aster symbolizes afterthought, daintiness and love of variety. They are also called Star flowers or Frost flowers (probably because they are one of the last to bloom before the autumn frosts).

 

The butterflies can't get enough of their tasty nectar that's hidden in the tiny yellow flowers clustered around the flower's center. This row of flowers separates them from the chrysanthemum family.
