|How difficult is it to identify Asters as to cultivar? |

|Your tall lavender one could be Aster novae-angliae, now called Symphyotrichum novae-angliae|
I have one like it, from Annie's Annuals called "Skyscraper'. http://www.anniesannuals.com/p...

|I believe you are correct Sue. It does get really tall. The other two were given to me by Diana, she lives here in Dallas, OR. |
I sure love them.
Going to add them to the Aster page since I don't know for sure what the cultivar names are.

|The pinks ones have more the look of Aster novi belgii , the bright pink one looks like 'Winston Churchill' although I'm seeing big variations in the colour of that, there are several which look the same as yours.|
Aster novi-belgii 'Little Pink Lady' looks close for the lighter one..
A page of pics on a grower's site to browse. It looks like yours are not the current varieties but it's nice to look at them to see the different varieties.
Little Pink Lady and Winston Churchill are both older varieties and probably widely sold. There was once fewer varieties than there is now!

|I'm going to email Diana and see if she remembers the names of the two pink ones.|
