Aster divaricatus 'Eastern Star'

Aster divaricatus 'Eastern Star'

Aster - Wood

'Eastern Star' White Wood Aster is shorter than the species and has dark burgundy stems to set off the white daisy-like flowers better. 'Eastern Star' is a low mounding perennial that blooms in September and October.  White Wood Aster tolerates a wide range of soil types and handles dappled shade to full shade.  Plants form colonies from underground rhizomes and tend to self-seed.  Aster divaricatus 'Eastern Star' is a host plant for Pearl Crescent and Checkerspot caterpillars and its winter seeds are enjoyed by songbirds, like goldfinches and juncos.  Found by Roger Rache in a coastal Rhode Island native population, it was first introduced by Canyon Creek Nursery, later grown in our region by Northcreek Nurseries (new name is Eurybia divaricata).

PRN Preferred:  More compact than the species, flowers even in dry shade.
