Eurybia macrophylla

Common name: Big-Leaved Aster

Native plant

Big-Leaved Aster is a shade loving plant with delicate, light purple to white flowers.  Like most Asters, bloom time occurs late summer to early fall and lasts a month to a month and a half.  Although this plant is a true woodland species, the best bloom displays occur when planted in part shade conditions.  The large, light green, heart-shaped basal leaves are very attractive in the spring and summer.  If given room, this plant will spread rhizomatously, forming small colonies.
