Wild Aster is a native herbaceous perennial native species with bountiful white flowers on a multi-stemmed plant. This flower is hardy, easy to grow, and resistant to drought and plant disease. The hardiness and beauty of the buds combine to make a winning combination you see in many gardens.
In nature, you might find wild aster in sun-filled meadows or partially sunny forest clearings. Wild aster thrives if you provide it with a similar sunny location, soil amended with woody organic matter or shredded leaves, and good drainage.
Gardeners who must contend with regular watering restrictions adore wild aster, as it can quickly recover from short dry spells.
The Striking Appearance of Wild Aster
Wild Aster grows upright and to a mature height of about three feet. The slightly hairy green or brown multi-stemmed perennials grow densely in the earliest summer months; by late summer and early fall, they will begin to blossom.
Wild aster leaves are elongated ovals and can grow from one to three inches long. The edges of the leaves are smooth and narrow into a well-defined tip.
Just as the summer blossoms wither and fade, the wild aster begins to put on a fantastic show of pure white and sunny yellow, helping you enjoy your garden for a few more weeks.
The petite flowers appear to be a daisy at first glance. However, these flowers are smaller, with each flower growing to no larger than an inch and more numerous on the stems. Each flower has approximately twelve to fifteen disc-thin, ray-shaped petals. They surround a yellow pom-pom center with tinges of red or burgundy.
Late Summer Critters Will Thank You for the Wild Aster
As the nights turn cool and the summer garden fades, you will provide a habitat for late-summer critters who need nectar and protective foliage, especially migratory birds and butterflies.
Plant wild aster in your pollinator garden or as a border flower, and you will welcome these visitors until the fall.
