Aster (Symphyotrichum) chilensis

California aster

This native aster is found throughout much of Sonoma County, usually in moist soils. Here its form is far more slender or gracile than the burly Point St. George clone. It spreads as widely as the previously mentioned clone but with a lighter touch, integrating itself well with native grasses and bulbs. Its summer to fall blossoms are white to lavender blue and provide excellent nectar for butterflies and beneficial insects. 1-2 ft. tall and spreading. Sun to light shade. Moderate to little summer irrigation.
