Sky Blue Aster adapts well to almost any area, from swamps to woodlands or prairies. This species formerly had the rather intimidating Latin name “Symphyotrichum oolentangiense,” indicating the Ohio’s Olentangy River where botanist John Leonard Riddell discovered it in 1835. Originally from the Greek language, “aster” means “star.” At one time, asters were called starworts, frost flowers, or Michaelmas daisies; in spite of their daisy-like petals, asters are actually diminutive members of the sunflower family. In the language of flowers, these starry blossoms symbolize elegance or daintiness. They make a traditional gift for birthdays in the month of September, or for 20th wedding anniversaries.
