Remember this note trying to identify a plant?

Baby has grown up to be a Symphyotrichum puniceum or purple-stemmed aster. It doesn't have flowers yet, but the growth pattern of the mature plant screams "aster".

Interesting, but the thread is still open, so this probably goes there.

You posted a MetaTalk thread to tell us about how your flower has grown?

I can see by all the people who favorited that thread that the masses were clamoring for this information.

The growth pattern of this immature thread screams "tough crowd".

Aww, cut him/her some slack. Clearly it was killing him/her not knowing what that thing was.

I remember screaming "aster" a few times. With an F in front of aster. Good times.

Cool that an answer has been found, but that wasn't exactly an epic askme mystery and the question thread is still very much open, so this is probably pushing past the reasonable utility of metatalk followops.
