Chrysopsis subulata, called the scrubland goldenaster, is an endemic central Florida species. “Though it's name would suggest otherwise, scrubland goldenaster is most common to well-drained uplands - especially xeric flatwoods and sandhills, but not scrub.” ~Craig N. Huegel, Ph.D
A flowering plant in the aster family, Chrysopsis subulata is a biennial herb up to 28 inches tall. Blooming season can start early and finish late with blooms possible May –December. Its tolerance of a variety of growing conditions should make it a relatively easy species to maintain in a typical landscape situation and its growth habit should allow it to mix well with other species. Excellent for pollinators.
