Late summer at Red Butte is when many plants in the sunflower, or aster family, (Asteraceae) put on the best show.
The flowers in this family come in many sizes from the very large like the garden sunflower, to the very small like the native Broom Snakeweed.
As you walk through the Garden, you can find examples of flowers in the aster family all throughout.
See how many different kinds of aster family flowers you can find!
The trees in the Natural Area are telling us that Fall is just around the corner, so keep an eye out for gorgeous fall colors in the garden.
