Prairie Aster grows throughout most of the western United States, especially thriving in the desert areas of the southwest. In addition to its high tolerance of drought, this plant attracts many butterflies and birds. 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.
