Aster likiangensis

Aster likiangensis was not easy to track down. Searching this down on the web led to a statement that Aster likiangensis (from Lijiang in China) was a synonym for Aster asteroides (i.e. the one that looks like an aster: true but not helpful). That led to a statement that this was a synonym for Sericocarpus asteroides. That comes from the eastern part of north America - which is rather a long way from western China, botanically as well as geographically. No doubt all will be revealed when it flowers. Meanwhile, expect flat-topped sprays of flowers, each individual flower having a few white rays and yellow centres.

White ray flowers, but with few rays per head.
