Symphyotrichum oblongifolium (Aromatic Aster) gets its common name from the spicy scent of its foliage when crushed. It is a shorter bushy aster that is typically found in higher quality normal/dry to dry prairie. Large purple daisy-like flowers bloom beginning in late summer and can go well into October. Asters are key pollinator plants that provide a welcome source of late-season nectar, particularly useful for the migrating monarch butterflies. Even more interesting is that a multitude of moths uses them as larval hosts.
