Aster divaricatus (White Woodland Aster)

Height: 2 feet
Spread: 2 feet
Light: Part sun to shade.
Soil: Amended, well-drained soil. Drought tolerant once established.
Description: Evergreen, dark, heart-shaped foliage forms a slowly spreading clump. Small, white flowers on nearly black stalks completely cover this perennial in late summer through fall. Cut back in June to maintain a tidier habit or allow to go wild – either look great! Allow to naturalize in the woodland garden. This aster really shines in late summer/early fall when everything else is looking pretty rough and pollinators have little forage.
