Aster-novae-angliae-white-2009-09-27-01

Now Symphyotrichum novae-angliae. This is the rare white form of the New England Aster. White asters of other species are a dime a dozen, but the New England Aster is usually purple or violet, uncommonly pink, and quite rarely white. Found in a roadside meadow near West Newton.
