Ha! This one appears to have escaped the taxonomical onslaught on asters, and has been spared renaming to Symphyotrichum or Eurybia! It's a little aster with nice pink flowers, just right for the rock garden. We grew it many years ago, and are now re-establishing it from seed.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
