No idea what it is, but I'm wondering if those are fully formed flowers, or buds? If there is more flower development that might make for an easier ID....

thanks, Kyla. They are buds. Yes, I keep thinking if only it would bloom, ID would be so much easier! Hopefully soon. It's right next to my Lobelia cardinalis and I assumed it was one also, but I'm not sure. All the others are in bloom, and this one totally not, plus the buds don't look as plume-like.

Must have overshot that one.

Still no blooms? I'm really curious, now!

I'm all ears!

Still hasn't bloomed! Might be an aster. May not be getting quite enough sun. :-(

I'm thinking an aster of some kind?

It is probably Symphyotrichum novi-belgii 'Henry III'. I had this last year and thought it didn't come back! Big Grin
