Description

Eurybia divaricata (syn. Aster divaricatus), the white wood aster, is an hardy perennial plant native to eastern North America. It is abundant and common in the eastern United States, and is also present in southeastern Canada but in Canada it is considered threatened due to its restricted distribution. It has been introduced to a number of countries in Europe.
It can be found in dry open woods as well as along wood-edges and clearings.
Eurybia divaricata is a late summer to fall-flowering herbaceous perennial, typically growing to heights between 30 and 90 cm, though some specimens may be up to 1.2 m (3.9 ft) tall.

This plant has a nice especially in North American native gardens. The plant flowers earlier than many other asters, does not require any staking to support it and flowers well in shade. It is attractive to gardeners due to its showy white flowers that emerge in mid to late summer, as well as its hardiness and the minimal maintenance it requires. It has little problem with both disease and insects. They do require partial shade, however, and they perform best when given about 4 hours of sunlight. The plants can be cut to 20 cm (8 in) in the spring in order to delay flowering and increase the number of branches. It is marginally hardy in USDA zone 3, and fully hardy from zones 4 to 8.

Type: Hardy Perennial

Hardiness zones: (3)4-8

Height: Typically growing to heights between 30 and 90 cm, though some specimens may be up to 1.2 m (3.9 ft) tall.

Location: Requires partial shade, however, and they perform best when given about 4 hours of sunlight. 

Seeds per pack: 15

Note: Ornamental use only. May be poisonous.

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Start indoors. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. These seeds require light to germinate. Sow the seeds on surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Do not bury the seeds. Leave them at room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for 4 weeks. If they have not germinated after 4 weeks then a cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 4 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to a cool room (15C, 59F) for them to germinate. Germination can be 30-60 days after the warming period, though some will take longer.
