Growing best in sunny locations, New England Aster is native to most of the United States and can be found as an ornamental throughout the country. Found in moist prairies, meadows, stream banks and roadsides, the purple and yellow flower is easily recognizable when in bloom from September-October. Its late bloom makes in an excellent nectar source for migrating butterflies, like the monarch. Reaching 2-6 feet in height, it can grow on poor soils although it does best in fertile soils.
