Care: Aster divaricatus has the ability to grow and flower in dry shade. Flowering and form are best, however, in partly shaded sites where plants have 3 hours or so of sun. They self-seed to the point that some describe the plant as “weedy”. This should not be an issue in a natural setting but in smaller gardens, dead-heading can limit seed production. To encourage density, plants can be cut back to 6” in late spring.
