Though rare, this woodland aster can still be found occasionally in the midwestern region. Since it often fails to pollinate itself and produce seed, this plant’s existence has become threatened in many states and is listed in the Center for Plant Conservation’s National Collection of Endangered Plants. 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.
