Willowleaf Aster, Willow Aster

Symphyotrichum praealtum, Aster praealtus, Aster caerulescens

The tall stems of this native perennial cover up in 1" light purple daisies in late summer and fall. Willowleaf Aster, Symphyotrichum praealtum, produces a multitude of upright to arching stems once well-established and makes a grand statement in the fall garden, prairie, meadow, or roadsides. The flowers attract a variety of pollinators but are an especially important late summer and fall nectar source for native bees. Willowleaf Aster or Willow Aster is long rhizomatous, versus clumpforming, and will slowly colonize an area once established creating a dense stand at maturity. Provide a full to mostly sunny site in moist to average moist soils. Cutback to ground level after flowering to prevent unwanted seedlings if desired. Item# 10693.

Small dutchman's pipe shaped primrose yellow flowers with a dark maroon throat are produced in spring atop the hairy foliage and stems. The Wooly Ducthman's Pipevine is a twining perennial native vine typically found growing in moist sandy soils along stream banks and near other perennial water sources. Anytime that I have personally seen this vine in the wild it always seems to be eaten up by Pipevine Swallowtail caterpillars and it is an excellent native host plant for them. The Wooly Dutchman's Pipevine, Aristolochia tomentosa, is most abundant in the south central US from the eastern half of Texas to extreme western Georgia and north to the southern half of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and western Kentucky. Provide a full to partly sunny location in sandy or loamy soils with average moisture. Item# 11794
