Asters are fall flowers that come in all sizes and grow in a wide variety of moisture conditions in woodland and prairie habitats and other sorts of wild places. All are favorites for butterflies and a host of other insects such as this bumblebee on frost asters. My observations indicate that insects prefer wild asters over garden varieties.
