White Woodland Aster, Calico Aster, Starved Aster, One-sided Aster

Symphyotrichum lateriflorum, Aster lateriflorus

In fall loads of dainty 1/2" wide white daisies with a pinkish-purplish 'eye' literally cover the plant for weeks and offer nectar and pollen to smaller pollinators. The White Woodland Aster or Calico Aster, Symphyotrichum lateriflorum, is a small bushy clump forming native perennial common throughout the Eastern and Central US and spilling over into Canada. It is a common component of our local Pineywoods region that adds a bolt of color beneath that of the changing foliage as well as providing a pollinator food source at a time when many plants have gone to seed for the year but native bees are still stockpiling. The White Woodland Aster is fairly tolerant of full sun to partly shaded sites and is a good choice for meadows, prairies, and roadside plantings. It may reseed on exposed soils, although it does not appear to be aggressive. Caterpillar host plant for the Pearl Crescent butterfly. Item# 12039

The fragrant, 4" wide flowers of this diminutive species Louisiana Iris sport purplish-blue, widely flaring sepals that are each heavily centered with creamy yellow on short zigzagging stems that hold flower buds at each turn. The Zigzag Louisiana Iris multiplies readily creating a loose ground cover that is choreographed with the changing seasons. It is at its peak in late spring when it is in flower and the foliage reaches its maximum of about 24" high. In late summer it begins to go dormant fading back to about 3-4 inches high from which it regrows all winter preparing for spring flowering. Excellent for naturalizing even in average moist soils. Item# 10877.
