The New England Aster (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae) stands out with its golden central disks complimented by long, purple petals. Blooming later than many prairie native wildflowers, this perennial wildflower provides nectar for bees and butterflies into the fall, and is often seen growing alongside Goldenrod. This species is deer-resistant.

Asters are prolific self-seeders. The New England Aster does well in a wide-range of soils, small areas,  or in home garden / landscapes

The New England Aster grows 3 to 6 feet tall and blooms from late summer until the fall frost (Aug-Oct). Hardy and easily grown from seed, it prefers cooler summer temperatures yet flourishes in a variety of soil types, given adequate drainage, growing primarily in the central and eastern United States.
