The Native Plant Store is Now Open Here

  • This page will remain accessible as a library page until I have all 200+ species profiles added to the new store software
  • Please see the Using the Plant Library  page  for some tips on how to make the most of the information here to select species for creating a healthy native plant community suited to the conditions of your site.

Symphyotrichum urophyllum, Arrow-leaved Aster

Symphyotrichum urophyllum

Arrow-leaved Aster

  • Full sun to partial shade
  • Average soils
  • 36” tall, 12” to 18” wide
  • Summer to fall bloom
  • Ontario Native, Beginner Friendly. Thrives in meadow and garden settings

Still new to me, grown from seeds from the Ottawa Wildflower Seed Library

With a similar form and blooming season, I think that these would make lovely companions for Heartleaved Aster. They would also pair well with Zigzag Goldenrod and American Alumroot.
