Another First Bloom

The New England aster (Aster novae-angliae ‘Purple dome’) that I bought at Well Sweep Herb Farm is blooming. Unlike the Prince Henry anemone, this aster developed its buds after I planted it. According to Well Sweep’s catalog, it is supposed to grow to 2’ (61 cm) high but the ones I saw at Willowwood were much taller.
