The turbinate aster gets it's name from it's turban or top shaped flower heads. This perennial wildflower blooms lavender to blue-violet, with yellow to reddish purple centers. One of the very last wildflowers to bloom, this aster provides attractive color in the mid-fall months. Not only is the nectar and pollen attractive to various bees and butterflies, but wild turkeys, white-tailed deer, and cottontail rabbits are sometimes drawn to the seeds and foliage.
