Symphyotrichum cordifolium (heart shaped aster, common blue wood aster)


Blue wood aster is a later bloomer that erupts in clouds of pale pastel blue and purple flowers on low growing stems. Asters are a top keystone species perennial and host beneficial larvae. They attract and feed many pollinators, especially butterflies and bees, making them a pollinator powerhouse. They are a very important late season pollinator plant. Not only are they blooming for the insects late, but it makes for a gorgeous contrast against native fall bronze grasses, yellow goldenrod, and milkweed seed heads. Asters should be planted everywhere, in gardens, meadows, roadsides, groundcovers, ect.., especially because they are NOT deer resistant and they need our help as much as we need theirs.
