Aster plants get their name from the Latin word for "star;" take one look at these cheerful flowers and it's no surprise why. For one, their shape is akin to that of a star or sunburst. They also come in eye-catching bright colors, such as white, pink, and a unique shade of purple. The majority of aster plants are known for blooming in fall and bringing their signature brightness to autumnal gardens. However, some asters bloom in spring or summer.
Asters are are easy to grow and tolerant of a slew of weather conditions. They prefer exposure to partial or full sunlight, and they like to dig their roots into soil that's loamy. Since they peak in summer or fall, it's important to note that they grow best in places where it's cool and moist at night. And, like most flowers, too little or too much water can prove to be detrimental to their healthy growth. Aster plants make ideal borders, rock-garden foliage, and butterfly bushes. Whether you buy aster plants that shoot up to eight feet tall or stay at a compact eight-inch height, you're making a colorful addition to your garden.
