Description from Possibility Place: Heath Aster produces an abundance of classic daisy-like flowers with white petals and yellow centers.  As with all asters, it blooms late summer to early fall, lasts for about 2 months, and attracts a wide range of bees, butterflies and other pollinators looking for their last bit of nectar and pollen for the season.  The plant has a bushy, sprawling growth habit.  Trim in late May to early June to avoid staking later in the year.  In open areas, this plant will form small colonies.
