A great late-season flower for dry areas!
A wonderful late-season pollinator plant, Hall’s Aster is an inhabitant of prairies which once covered much of Western Washington and Oregon. These prairies were traditionally burned by Coast Salish people, who used fire to maintain food plants. Over the past century, this habitat has been lost to parking lots and fire suppression. We are proud to grow this and other related plants, and hope to help increase the human habitat that once was plentiful. Hall’s Aster is imperiled in WA (G4/S2).
Hall's Aster tends to stay below about 3 feet, and generally spreads a bit less than other Asters.
