We highly recommend adding one or more asters to your garden or habitat. Most bloom in the late summer into the early fall providing nectar sources for late season butterflies and insects. In our habitat we notice a lot of Common Buckeyes, Common Checkered Skippers, bees, and hoverflies on Aromatic Aster in late September into late October.
Members of the species Symphyotrichum serve has host plants for the Pearl Crescent butterfly. Stoke’s Aster is a favorite of grass skippers as a nectar plant.
