Georgia Aster is a native wildflower in the daisy family. It is typically found in dry rocky woodlands or in disturbed areas. Threats to survival include elimination of habitat disturbance such as fire. Other threats include road construction and herbicide application.

It prefers full sun in well-drained soils. This plant may be used in perennial borders or native meadow gardens. Bees and pollinators frequently visit this food source along with small mammals and deer.

Members of the genus Symphyotrichum support the following specialized bees: Andrena asteris, Andrena asteroides, Andrena hirticincta, Andrena nubecula, Andrena placata, Andrena simplex, and Colletes simulans.

Deer Resistant!
