Large-leaved Aster, Eurybia macrophylla
This woodland aster is growing in the Woodland Restoration Project on
the northeast side of Fresh Pond Reservation. The plant was donated
by Arieh Tal, whose fascination with, and pursuit of knowledge about
asters and goldenrods has made him an expert among botanists. His excellent
and Goldenrods of New England, is very helpful in identifying these
sometimes consfusing species.
