Aster 'White Heath' Plants

  • $ 25.95

The heath aster is always a fall favorite around here.  In our area they start sporadically blooming in late September and in the middle or end of October the blooms cover the plants; resembling a fresh snowfall.  This late blooming habit is very beneficial for butterflies, bees, and other insects that need nectar in the late season.  The foliage resembles the heath plant (hence the name), is deep green, and upright throughout the summer.  During the fall blooming season they tend to bend over, but it is an attractive arching habit.  It is recommended to plant in groups of three or more and they are exceptionally beautiful if allowed to grow through a split rail fence.  A US native.
