A very low, dense carpeting groundcover that is smothered with 1/2" single white flowers with gold centers in September. A good strong grower and a totally new look and use for Asters! Makes an excellent container plant.
Lightly fragrant flowers attract butterflies and honey bees
A favorite of the Pearl Crescent butterfly
Rhizomatous root system helps stabilize soils
Deer resistant while providing great cover
Perfect groundcover for dry shade
Found in dry prairies and roadsides.
Plant several different types of Asters such as Smooth Aster (Aster laevis) and New England Aster (Aster novae-angliae) because they bloom at different times. You'll enjoy the butterflies for weeks longer that way.
Will grow in a range of soils and moisture levels. Does best in full to part sun in average to dry soil.
