Just before getting the spider web shots on Sunday, I had a long talk with a fellow lake dweller that included a discussion on native, alien, and invasive species. It has reminded me that I planned to tag each species with native or alien. I'm trying to get back on track with that as well as adding invasiveness.
Here's a native species, New York Aster, Symphyotrichum novi-belgii. It seems that this genus was at some time renamed from Aster. Other than that, I don't find much information on this species but it sure is an attractive little plant.
