Asters are the flowers of September

Each month has its own flower of the month. September's flower is the beautiful aster.

Asters are very popular in butterfly gardens. They are a later summer/fall bloomer and flower a blue, white or pink star-like flower.

The aster comes in many varieties. It can grow as small as just eight inches or as tall as eight feet, depending on the specific variety. Be sure to place your aster in a sunny area - at least five hours a day.
