California aster has summer flowers that make showy
cheerful displays along roadsides of much of Coastal Southern
California. This perennial aster will disappear (or need to be pruned
to the ground) in winter, only to reappear the next spring. If you
plant along with Solidago californica (California Goldenrod)
and Zauschneria 'Catalina'
or Zauschneria cana
the flower bed will come alive in late summer and on through the first frosts.
This plant is well liked by our native moths and butterflies as a nectar source.
Use in an English style perennial garden to mix in with the larger forbs.
