Aster plant - Symphyotrichum
Aster is a ground cover plant that attracts butterflies from summer through autumn. They are long-living perennial plants that you may incorporate into your landscape permanently. Although the 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; 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 many growing conditions, allowing you to utilize them in various settings, including borders, rock gardens, and wildflower gardens.
For them to thrive, the soil ought to have a pH of 5.8 to 6.5, remain loamy and well-draining, and have enough room around the plants so that their roots can spread out fully. When planting, you must ensure your perennial flowers remain in full sun for most of the day.
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 to 8 feet, based on its type, allowing you to choose one that is ideal for your landscape.

When you brush against the leaves, a faint scent comes from the rich green foliage. To avoid powdery mildew, you should not plant these perennials 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.
