Symphyotrichum ericoides

This native Aster is easy to grow, thrives in medium to dry conditions and is rather drought tolerant. It’ll form a bushy appearance with heavy branching and if able, will spread to form colonies via its rhizomes. It’s often found in an array of prairie types, savannas, along roadsides and pastures. Its flowers will attract a wide variety of native bees and butterflies. It’s also the host plant to the Pearl Checkerspot butterfly. White Heath Aster is a great late season bloomer!
