Set B2 - Wild Flowers - card information

32. Sea Aster
(Aster tripolium L.)

32. Sea Aster

On parts of the east and south coasts there are wide salt marshes, covered by the high tides. Here the sea aster grows, often abundantly, and presents a beautiful picture in late summer. It is about two feet tall, with narrow, rather fleshy leaves, and flowers resembling pale-blue Michaelmas daisies. Occasionally a variety will be found in which the flower-head has only the yellow disk, and no ray florets.
