the mystery unfolds

My friend Pam sent me a new photograph of her mystery plant. The buds are slowly unfurling and appear to be uncovering a light-colored interior. I continue to have no idea what this could be, but I am mightily intrigued.


  1. They look a fair bit like an aster, especially the bud, but I'm no expert, I'm sure. :) Let us know!

  2. My thought, too. Chinese aster, right? However, Pam doesn't think so. I'm also considering Stokesia. We'll see!

  3. Did you find out what the mystery plant is. My guess is either an chinese aster or stokesia of some kind.
