Small, white flowers, with yellow centers, on branched stems. The flowering branches have a soft, hairy covering. Also known as hairy white oldfield and hairy aster, as it provides a good display late in autumn, after several frosts. Important to wildlife. Shows up in landscapes without planting. Very aggressive.
