Aster ericoides 'Bridal Veil' PP23966

Heath Aster

Aster ericoides ‘Bridal Veil’ is a no-fuss, profuse fall-blooming native perennial that will steal the show from August to October! Stunning, dense clusters of small, white, daisy-like blooms with brownish-yellow centers blanket the multi-branched stems throughout its fall bloom period, inviting a plethora of bees, butterflies, and other pollinator species to delight in the late season nectar. The blooms tend to be so numerous that they completely cover the small, finely textured foliage, which gives almost a bright green, lavender-esque quality to the landscape when not in bloom. It is this delicate, tiny foliage that gives this plant its common name, Heath Aster, for resembling the similarly shaped foliage of Erica (Heath). This plant is tolerant of drought once established, and makes for an excellent addition to the gravel or rock garden. (New name is Symphyotrichum ericoides 'Bridal Veil').
