Steve And Muffin’s Wildflowers #50.

Hi everyone! Sorry I didn’t get this out yesterday morning, but here we are today with a new wildflower for us, the “northern bog aster”. This is also known as the “rush aster”. It will grow in sunny or partially shady locations in wet meadows, or along shores of streams, rivers and lakes, and in bogs or swamps. The flowers can be white, light lavender or light pink. The plant itself is not as nice looking as most asters, but the flowers are still beautiful, and are about 1 inch (2.5cm) across. It blooms from July to October and can grow up to 36 inches (90cm) tall, though around here it’s usually about 24 inches (60cm) tall. They can be found right across Canada and the northern part of the US. Have a great Saturday everyone and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.
