Shorts Aster

I am so excited because my Shorts Aster (Aster shortii) that we got at the Native Plant Sale in April has finally bloomed. It's an October bloomer!

It began blooming early October with three stalks full of these tiny purple flowers; it's such a treat in the shady native plant garden. It really grew from the tiny plant it was in April.

Oh, I like that plant.Is that as tall as it gets? Where did you go to a native plant sale? I live in Chicago.
