Silky Aster is native to the United States from Texas to North Dakota and west to the Great Lakes. Given its name from the silky hairs that cover its leaves, this perennial will grow to a height of 1-3 feet. Occupying dry, upland sites and open woodlands, it is very drought tolerant preferring to grow in full sun. The purple and yellow flowers are in bloom from August-October when it is frequented by many insects and pollinators.
