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.
