Panicled Aster is a common, widespread species, occurring in all states of the continental U.S.  It is one of our most aggressive asters, spreading by rhizomes and re-seeding to form colonies.  However, if you have sufficient space or need plants for a moist meadow, shoreline restoration or  large rain garden, this plant has a lot to offer.  A profusion of white flowers can light up the landscape, especially in hard-to-grow places.  Although aggressive, it generally will not out compete other plant species. Native habitats include disturbed areas, roadside ditches, fence rows, pastures and abandoned fields.  Attracts a wide range of pollinators, including many species of bees, moths, wasps, and butterflies.
