Aster

(Compositae - daisy family)
Somewhere between 250 and 500 species of mostly summer- and fall-flowering perennial herbs. Many of these are popular ornamentals. The following native species are well suited to meadows and wild gardens. Can't ship to CA, OR, or WA.

carolinianus peren • ht to 10' (with support) • zones 5-9

climbing aster


native, fragrant, dry - moist, sun - part shade
se US

An interesting, vine-like aster with narrow, grayish-green leaves. Bears an abundance of pink to pale purple flowers beginning in August. Flowers peak in their showiness in October, and can last through November in milder climates. The sweet almond scent of the flowers is strongest on sunny days. Climbs trellises or other structures with ease, sometimes reaching a height of 10'. Stems that are not killed by the winter should not be cut back in spring to encourage bushier growth.
