Siberian Aster

Eurybia sibirica


The flowers emerge in the summer and display white to pale purple ray florets as well as yellow disc florets that become purplish as they mature.


E. sibirica is present in much of the subarctic region of world, from western North America through Siberia and to Scandinavia. Its range stretches from the northern Rocky Mountains beginning in the south in Idaho and Montana, north to the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia, farther into the North West Territories and Nunavut, west to Yukon and Alaska, across the Bering Strait into Siberia and continuing west through Russia and into Norway. It is found at heights ranging from sea level up to 2200 metres in sandy or gravely soils in disturbed or open areas of boreal forests. It is also present in wet meadows, in open areas of aspen and spruce woods and along riparian thickets. In addition, it is common growing in sandy or gravelly stream flats, along stream banks and the shores of lakes, on bluffs, in sand dunes and other sandy places, and in both sub-alpine and mountain meadows.
