     It's hard to find a plant lovelier than New York Aster. Its blooms and overall form are beautiful, and it spreads slowly, making it a good addition to any garden.


     New York Aster is a larval host to the Pearl Crescent butterfly, and it provides nectar for Monarchs and other butterflies, moths and several bee species.


     Fun fact: novi-belgii means "of New Belgium," referencing an early name for New York.
