New England Aster is native to the Montreal area and found usually on wet ground but it can also grow on dry soil or sand. This species blooms late summer and autumn. As a late blooming flower, the species is important for many bee species, butterflies and other insects.

How to Identify

Small, numerous flowers each with many violet petals. Color may vary from violet to purple but still allows it to distinguish from other similar species.

Where When to Spot

I usually see and photograph this flower in Champ des Possibles late summer.
