Wildflowers - Aster Seeds

Most plants in the Aster family bloom in the late summer or early fall, with some species being the last thing to bloom before snowfall. This means that Asters fill a crucial role in the fall season of providing nectar and pollen for pollinators like honeybees, and butterflies. Also, they fill a beautiful role in the prairie ecosystem of some nice colors late in the season! There are many species of Asters, and they vary in size and color, but New England Aster is probably the most popular species that we sell. Most Asters are perennials, but watch out for the few in here that are from the Callistephus genus - these are annuals. Taxonomists have come up with some new classifications for Asters in recent years, but we have stuck with the simple genus name of Aster for now.
