Eurybia macrophylla (Asteraceae)
Bigleaf Aster adds interesting texture to the garden with its low clumps of large heart-shaped leaves. Loose vertical sprays of pale-lavender flowers light up woodland gardens from late summer to early fall. Clumps spread to eventually form a tight colony; a perfect native groundcover and pollinator plant for tough shady areas.
