The Climbing Aster is a Florida native found along the edges of swampy wetland areas, along streams and rivers and other waterways. It is a perennial woody and sprawling shrub-like plant and although it does not have tendrils for clinging like other vines, it climbs over and through other vegetation, blooming from late summer through fall and even into December here in Florida. Although this is a wetland plant and can handle saturated soil for long periods, it adapts well to regular landscapes too; just be sure to water a bit more during extreme drought situations.
