White Wood Aster

Eurybia divaricata


• Flower size: flowerheads 3/4 to 1 inch across • Flower color: white rays; center starts yellow then ages to reddish purple • Flowering time: August to October


Though the picture looks like a white wood aster, this was actually growing in a swampy wet area. According to the general habitat it should be dry woods. Perhaps that is why it appears smaller than what a normal specimen would be.
