We came back from Whidbey to rain and the very first flower from the tall, gangly asters that have been biding their time all spring and summer before finally coming into bloom. Next year I’m going to be more ruthless about ripping most of them out, since they tend to take over, but they do provide some contrast to all the low-growing stuff and they bloom fairly late into the fall. Great easy-care parking strip plant!
