Aster ptarmicoides

Upland Aster
This virtually unknown August-September blooming Aster bears hundreds of attractive cream centered white flowers on 15" stems, beloved by butterflies and beneficial insects. The foliage is a linear dark green, forming tidy mats. A prairie native, it is very tolerant of dry conditions. You may sometimes see this listed as Solidago, but we've now learned it should be called Oligoneuron album..., okay taxonomists, really?
