The Native Plant Store can Now be Found Here

  • This page will remain accessible as a library page until I have all the species moved to the new page and all the quirks worked out in the new software so it can function as a searchable library.
  • Please see the Using the Plant Library  page  for some tips on how to make the most of the information in this existing library to select species for creating a healthy native plant community suited to the conditions of your site.

Eurybia divaricata, White Wood Aster

Eurybia divaricata

White Wood Aster

  • Average to moderately dry soils
  • Part shade
  • 24” tall, 18” to 30” wide
  • Fall Blooms
  • Ontario Native, Thrives in Woodlands and urban garden conditions

Thriving in partial shade and not stressed by dry summer conditions, this is an Aster that fits very well into a lot of urban garden settings. They have a long blooming season, with the photos here taken from August 18th to September 21st, all of the same small patch of plants. Like most Asters, these are quite attractive to pollinators and their late blooming season helps to ensure that there is food available for fall.

Highly recommended for partially shaded spaces.

While it rarely comes up, I do reserve the right to limit plant quantities, mostly to help ensure that as many native plant gardens as possible become a reality
