Plant Information

False Aster, or Boltonia asteroides, is a tall-growing native wildflower. Hundreds of white blooms sit atop plants that can grow from 5-6’ tall, depending on the soil type. Plants will be shorter grown in drier soil and taller in a more moist soil. If plants start to need support in the early summer months, False Aster can be cut back by 1/3 and will still provide prolific blooms.

This easy-to-grow wildflower provides nourishment for pollinators in the late summer all the way into fall and will attract a variety of butterflies, bees, and wasps. We recommend planting this native beauty with Goldenrod, Aster or Joe-Pye Weed for a colorful late-season finale in your garden.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
