Description

Aster plant - Symphyotrichum, formerly called Asteraceae - is a ground cover plant that bears white, blue, pink, red, and purple flowers and attracts butterflies all from summer through the autumn season

They are long-living perennial plants that you may incorporate into your landscape permanently. Although aster blooms have a wildflower appearance, they are still stunning in cut flower arrangements. With star-shaped blossoms that vary in shades ranging from white to blue to purple, asters are daisy-like flowers widely known for their variety in colors and vibrant yellow centers, resembling sun-rays. When the weather warms up, they brighten up almost every fall garden, even if other plants stop blooming.

These native plants aren't only beautiful to humans; instead, they are known to attract pollinators, including bees and butterflies, owing to the stunning blossoms of this plant. Planting them in autumn may provide a valuable supply of late-season nectar, making them a vital flower for pollinators.

While it is possible for you to grow asters using seeds and sow them in the spring, the flowers might need some years to blossom into full-sized plants. Hence, most gardeners opt to grow them from potted nursery cultivars rather than via seeds. The plant is adaptable to a lot of growing conditions allowing you to utilize them in a variety of settings, including borders, rock gardens, and wildflower gardens.

In order for them to thrive, the soil ought to have a pH of 5.8 to 6.5, remain loamy, well-draining, and have enough room around the plants so that their roots can spread out fully. You need to make sure your aster flowers remain in full sun for most of the day when planting them. Many popular cultivars and hybrids have lanky plants due to too much shadow, which might result in fewer blooms. Its size may vary, starting from about 8 inches leading to 8 feet, on the basis of its type, allowing you to choose one that is ideal for your landscape.

Aster plants are native to North America and encompass various species (about 180) in many distinct genera of plants, along with hundreds of cultivars

The most prevalent asters include the New England aster, also known as Purple dome (Symphyotrichum Novae-angliae), the New York aster (Symphyotrichum Novi-belgii), the Blue aster (Symphyotrichum Oolentangiense), and the Heath aster (Symphyotrichum ericoides).

When you brush against the leaves, a faint scent comes off from the rich green foliage. In order to avoid powdery mildew, you should not plant asters in soil that is too moist. Once these plants mature, you should only water them when it is indispensable. Also, keep a keen eye on potted asters since they are more susceptible to drying out.
