Aspen Daisy is a native perennial wildflower which typically grows 1 – 2 feet tall. Its flowers bloom in summer with yellow centers surrounded by narrow, usually light violet-purple petals with a similar look to aster wildflowers. Its stems are typically green, and some have a hint of maroon.


Aspen Daisy is adapted to Intermountain and Northwestern Regions of the US from mid-elevations to sub-alpine. It grows wild along moist, open and tree covered slopes, streams, and roadsides. 


Aspen Daisy has moderate moisture requirements making it somewhat drought tolerant. It maintains good nutritional value for various wildlife and is a hardy pollinator.
It is also called Aspen/Showy fleabane.
