False Aster, also known as Eastern Doll’s Daisy or White Doll’s Daisy, is a perennial from the eastern half of the U.S. and Canada. Plants have sturdy stems, narrow gray-green leaves and produce beautiful sprays of numerous white flowers in late summer and fall. Plants spread by rhizomes but do not spread aggressively. This species typically occurs in sunny to lightly shaded forests, thickets, stream banks, moist meadows and prairies. Plants endure seasonal flooding and tolerate standing water for short periods. Flowers are attractive to many pollinators such as bees, beetles, butterflies, flies, moths and skippers. Plants also attract beneficial insects that prey upon pest insects. Recommended for pollinator gardens, wet meadows, detention basins, and rain gardens.
