A sport of our popular Wood’s Blue Aster; the blankets of fresh white blossoms with golden centers sparkle against the dark green foliage in fall. A perfect neutral for the bold colors of fall.

Native to the Appalachians, this late summer bloomer is noted for its disease resistance and typically grows in a mounded clump. The genus name is derived from the Latin word aster meaning star for the shape of the flowers.

Aster General Information

Asters are invaluable in the hardy border, adding superb color in the autumn. Very durable and long lived. Even heavy, wet soils will suit them. Richer soils will generally yield taller plants. Mounds of color begin in September, in a full range of colors. Asters support bees and butterflies right up until season's end.

Aster Plant Care

Pinch back and divide like mums for best display. General rule of thumb is to pinch until 4th of July and not after. Pinching yields better branching and more flowers. Can be divided every 2-3 years in spring. Avoid wet overwintering conditions. Remove spent flowers to prevent reseeding.
