Aster divaricatus

(Syn: Eurybia divaricata)
Aster-White Wood

Native to open woods, this shade-loving, spreading aster is perfectly paired with ferns and sedges. White, star-shaped flowers with yellow to red centers pop against the black stems, forming an airy cloud late in the season. A great late season food source for pollinators, but typically not favored by deer.
