I know I already did a post about aster flowers, but the white ones just bloomed. Have you ever noticed that the white flower of a plant blooms at a different time than the other colored flowers? I’m thinking of irises. The bearded ones or the Japanese Iris. White flowers bloom either before or after the other colors. In the case of asters, the white flowers are later. I really cannot remember what order the various colors of irises bloom. This will give me something (another thing) to observe next year. I am sure there are other flowers where the white specimen flowers at a different time, and I will have to pay more attention to find another example.
There is even a nursery devoted to white flowers. But I believe they started like that, but have come around to selling many colors of flowers.
Last night, I cut stems of three colors of asters, and put them in a mini-vase to photograph in the morning. Well, that did not happen, as I learned (the hard way) that aster flowers are not for cutting. This morning they had closed up as though to say their time on this earth was done. Well, at least the blooming plants look good massed in the garden beds.
