Amethyst aster (Symphyotrichum x amethystinum), the hybrid between heath aster (S. ericoides) and New England aster (S. novae-angliae), growing on an old railway embankment.

This is another species that I suspect has been misidentified as willowleaf aster (S. praealtum). Note the dense stem pubescence and broad, spinule-tipped phyllaries. Those features, in addition to the dark green abaxial leaf surfaces, differentiate this hybrid.

Kent County, Ontario, Canada.

It has linear leaves somewhat clasping stems but most importantly phyllaries that are densely glandular and villous

Seems to be commonly occurring restricted to this location. Most of them are not flowering at the moment (we just saw one) but I did try to map the east side of the slims river until the glacier for @brucebennett

Description

Hairs on the stems and leaves are conspicuously hirsute (bristly) throughout the year. The rhizomatous growth habit of white prairie aster results in its spreading form, stems evenly scattered and firmly attached to a perennial underground rhizome system. White ray petals contrast to yellow disk flowers in each flowering head. This site lies in the steppe along the west facing slopes at the north end of Burke Park, Bozeman, Montana.

Last photo. Taken at the end of October to illustrate the stems and leaves that remain conspicuously hirsute.
