This Aster is native from Ontario to Georgia. It is very adaptable and hardy, great for a woodland tapestry. Best to deadhead to prevent self-sowing unless you’d like a ground cover effect. Carpeted with white flowers in the fall. White flowers appear between September and October.
Fall-blooming favorite, with daisy-like flowers in varied colors. Selected mildew-resistant varieties. Moisture and good drainage will also help control mildew. Note that a few of the Asters have the nice long new genus name of Symphyotrichum. Nothing is easy, is it? We’ll list them under Aster for a couple of years until the dust settles.
