Our Experience

We will be adding this aster to our habitat for the 2021 butterfly season. We hope you’ll want to add it to yours, too!

Based upon our previous experience with growing native asters, we highly recommend adding any aster to your garden or habitat as a late season nectar source. They are easily grown and thrive on benign neglect. A nice assortment of pollinators can be observed foraging on the flowers.
