Symphyotrichum pilosum

Synonym(s) Aster pilosus
Common name frost aster
Family asteraceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers white/yellow (summer)
Size 1-4'
Light sun

One of the many ol' asters that got absorbed into the new Symphyotrichum classification. This is a U.S. wildflower that produces lots of classical yellow-and-white daisies. Probably not suitable for a neat border, but we'll find a place to stick a plant or two.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

Seed-starting details for this plant

  1. Seed from '07 trade, originally from Prairie Moon '06. Baggy 70F (14d) - 70F with light (12d; 2%G, 6d)

It looks like germination should be easy with fresh seed; this lot had likely lost most of its viability.
