Named for their unique raised centers, Turbinate Asters bloom very late in the fall and produce a feathery, cloud-like plant covered with blossoms. This plant received an Award for Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society. 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.
