Sky Blue Aster (Aster azureus) grows to about three feet in height and is covered with light blue flowers.

It is most commonly found in mesic to dry soils in prairies, savannahs and rocky upland woods.

The flowers attract a wide variety of insects including bees, and other pollinators which seek its pollen and nectar.

Its fibrous root system holds soil in place and helps control erosion. This species blooms from late summer well into the fall and add color and structure to prairie plantings.
