Hi,

This photo and the other do not show an Aster (Symphyotrichum) but rather a Chrysanthemum.

You are correct that the plant in the pictures is not an aster. However, we'll give threegardeners a few more days to respond before dealing with the images.

I had it identified on DG as an aster before I posted it here.
