About the Genus

Asters, commonly known as Michaelmas daisies, are a diverse and vibrant group of flowering plants that bring a burst of colour to gardens in late summer and early autumn. Belonging to the Asteraceae family, this genus encompasses a wide range of species, offering a palette of hues, shapes, and sizes.

The characteristic daisy-like flowers of Asters feature a central disk surrounded by vibrant petals, creating a mesmerizing, starry appearance. The colours span the spectrum, including shades of purple, pink, blue, and white, adding a vivid tapestry to landscapes. Noteworthy varieties include the New England Aster (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae) and the New York Aster (Symphyotrichum novi-belgii).

Asters are cherished for their versatility, thriving in various soil types and sunlight conditions. They make excellent additions to borders, cottage gardens, and wildflower meadows. Additionally, Asters attract pollinators like bees and butterflies, contributing to the overall biodiversity of the garden.
