My Fifteenth Aster Species!

Symphyotrichum tenuifolium, a salt marsh aster, new for me in my new salt marshy kinda home Gloucester Mass.

look at those beautiful phyllaries!

Maybe i'll write a post about my experience getting to know 15 species in a genus of plants (actually the entire genus Aster has been exploded into a dozen genera by now.  I've met Symphyotrichum, Eurybia, Ionactis and Doellingeria)
