Light purple flowers are around 1 inch wide. The most notable characteristic of this aster species is the way its heart-shaped leaves clasp the stem. Blooms late in the year after many other species are past. An amazing 112 native caterpillars use aster species as a host plant, some of these depending on Wavy-leaved Aster. This provides huge benefits for butterfly and moth populations, as well as birds and other wildlife that use caterpillars as a food source.
