Aster tataricus “Jindai”

Aster Jindai has past its peak bloom but is still adding interest and color to the Demonstration Garden beds in Dewey Square. The petals are curling in an attempt to protect the flowers from the drying winds and cold temperatures as it stores food in its overwintering roots.


The Cotinus leaf has lost almost all of its chlorophyll by now, late November, leaving behind a multicolored display that is a show-off in the landscape.
