At least they aren't calling it a true aster. That would be false

Same family, Asteraceae (Compsites). Asteraceae is a huge family comprising everything from sunflowers to thistles to artichoke to lettuce. Even dandelions and everlasting belong in this expansive family, which is divided further into many tribes.
Composite flowers make excellent nectar sources for bees and butterflies, and many plants help by feeding the caterpillars (host plants).
