White Aster Flower

Symphyotrichum ericoides, white heath aster, white aster, or heath aster is another plant that was busy blooming just before the big freeze. In this case, though, it was a fairly normal thing, since it usually blooms in late summer and fall.

As a member of the aster family, this herbaceous perennial has white, daisy-like composite flowers. It spreads slowly by rhizomes to form small bushes. It is a common plant and it found throughout most of eastern North America, typically in dry sandy and gravelly soils.
