Ecological Benefits

White Wood Aster (Eurybia divaricata) is a native perennial plant that contributes to Maryland's biodiversity and woodland ecosystems. Its late-season white blooms with yellow centers attract native pollinators like bees and butterflies, supporting local wildlife. This plant thrives in shaded environments, making it an excellent choice for woodland gardens and natural areas.


By providing essential habitat and nectar resources, White Wood Aster plays a role in supporting the health and balance of local ecosystems in Maryland, especially in late summer and early fall when many other nectar sources are scarce. Its ability to grow in part shade to full shade conditions enhances its value in shaded landscapes.
