While many flowers may have intoxicating beauty, few have actually been considered to have spellbinding powers. In ancient times, the aster was thought to be enchanted; the legendary powers came from burning the leaves of the plants, with the desired result of warding off evil serpents. While we may not believe in such things today, the aster remains a beautiful and desirable blossom to add to fall bouquets.
In fact, the aster is the birth flower of September; and as such is the perfect flower to include in birthday arrangements. Also identified as frost flowers, starworts or Michaelmas daisies, their most common name originates from the Greek word for “star”. These star-like blooms can be found across the color spectrum – white, red, pink, purple, lavender and blue – yet most exhibit yellow centers, which are actually comprised of many tiny yellow flowerets.
