From late summer to mid-fall, the late-flowering or spreading purple aster (Symphyotrichum patens) brightens open woodlands and dry fields across the eastern and southern United States with cheery, yellow-centered blue-purple daisy flowers. This sturdy perennial adds much-needed fall color to cottage, butterfly and native plant gardens in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 4 though 8. Plant it as a counterpoint to warmly hued chrysanthemums or to harmonize with other autumn-flowering, pink, white or purple asters.From late summer to mid-fall, the late-flowering or spreading purple aster (Symphyotrichum patens) brightens open woodlands and dry fields across the eastern and southern United States with cheery, yellow-centered blue-purple daisy flowers.
