(aka: Aster ericoides) Symphyotrichum 'Pink Star' is a Dutch selection of our North American native Symphyotrichum ericoides that has been one of the most superb asters in our garden trials. Native to most of the eastern US, Symphyotrichum ericoides is incredibly tolerant of dry, sunny conditions. Symphytrichum 'Pink Star' makes an airy-looking dense mound of small, narrow leaves to 2' tall x 3' wide. In late summer (August and September), the clump is smothered with thousands of 1" light pink flowers and contrasting colored butterflies...superb!
