Middle Eastern plant (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

aster

Here is my best explanation:

'plant' is the definition.

The answer is an example.

'middle eastern' is the subsidiary indication.

'middle' means to look at the middle letters.

The middle of 'eastern' is 'aster'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for aster that I've seen before include "Kind of daisy", "Flowering plant; tares (anag.)", "eg Michaelmas daisy", "Plant of Michaelmas daisy family", "Stare at pretty flower", "Garden flower", "Purple pink flowered plant", "Garden plant", "(Starlike) flower" and "It grows".)
