Wildflower on salt marsh for ID please

Post by adampembs » Fri Aug 28, 2015 3:16 pm

If photo isn't clear enough, I'll go back and try to key it out myself, but someone may know it instantly. The flowers have a slight pinkish/purplish hue that isn't visible in the photo.

Hi Adam,

It's the Sea Aster - Aster tripolium var.tripolium (the variety with bluish-mauve ray florets).

Regards,
Mike.

Thanks Mike, I got an ID from Nigel Stringer for it and the rust Puccinia cnici-oleracei that was on it.

Doh! :oops:

I'd already seen that topic but still hadn't spotted the fact that it was the same species of plant. :roll:

Mike.
