A Tribute to Asters

Asters make up one of the largest plant families in the world.

There are many varieties including sunflowers, zinnias, goldenrods, coreopsis, daisies, dandelions, and safflower for your favorite oil.

Together the asters support a variety of birds, butterflies and wildlife including humans.

Some asters will be in bloom from now through the first hard frost. Then they will provide the seed for the winter for many birds and wild things. And not only that they're quite beautiful.
