Anybody know which Aster this might be? Grows like a weed...almost 3 feet tall before it flops over. Butterfly and Bee magnet.

nope...good try though! The flowers on mine are much bigger. I think it's an "heirloom" perennial. Flowers are very fragrant too.

It sure is pretty ... and I didn't even know that Asters were fragrant, what a bonus!

This is marked as 'done'. What was the final ID?
