Comments: This is a relatively common native perennial wildflower over much of the U.S. It blooms in summer through the autumn and produces white, star-shaped flowers with yellow centers. This aster is tolerant of most soils but does best in a fertile, moist soil. This perennial attracts butterflies and other insects.
