white heath aster Interesting Notes

Typically growing 4-6” tall, this herbaceous perennial is a prostrate form of the 3' tall species.  At first glance it resembles a spreading dwarf juniper with its rigid sprawling stems and notable linear, stiff leaves. Late summer to mid-autumn flowering, the yellow centered, ½” wide, white, star-shaped flowers cover the entire plant at peak bloom. Snow Flurry white heath aster will tolerate some shade but prefers full sun and dry, well-drained soil.  This plant is ideal for the front of the perennial border and is an excellent candidate for the rock garden. It makes an excellent companion for Silene virginicaAquilegia canadensisOpuntia humifusa, and Amsonia ciliata var. tenuifolia. - Mt. Cuba Center
