White Wood Aster
We never tire of Aster’s cheerful daisy
faces and the profusion of colors and sizes that make
up this genus, from 6 ft. giants to tiny dwarf
alpines. Our Asters, large and small, are tried and true
performers in ordinary garden soil and full sun.
Generally late summer bloomers, they provide lots
of oomph when other perennials have petered out.
Small white flowers like finely cut daisies, with a
yellow center, and elongated heart-shaped, coarsely toothed, dark green leaves, are displayed in large clusters on sinuous, purple-black stems. This Aster is better-known in Europe, where it’s used to light up shady urban gardens. We find it
indispensable in the country too, for its tolerance of
dry, shady sites. A good plant for the front of the border, try it with Hypericum kouytchense or broad-leafed
Size: 15"–18" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
Aster divaricatus (P-0023)
