Aromatic Aster blooms very late in the fall, and distinguishes itself from other asters by its attractive balsam scented foliage and larger than usual blooms. Though rather uncommon in the wild, it usually grows in rough, dry ground or prairie soil. 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.
