Aster Flower Background & Meaning
Aster comes from the Greek word for “star” in reference to the flower’s star-like structure. Bearing a resemblance to a daisy, this flower is associated with plenty of legends. According to Greek mythology, asters were believed to be sacred to the gods and were used in wreaths placed on altars to honor them. According to Cherokee legend, two young girls who hid in the woods to escape feuding tribes sought the help of an elderly woman one day. Foreseeing that the girls would be in danger, the woman sprinkled herbs over the children and covered them in leaves as they slept to protect them. In the morning, the two girls had turned into flowers — asters.
In addition to being associated with many legends, this flower holds special meaning, including patience, love, elegance and daintiness. Aster flowers are a lovely choice for bridal and baby showers, weddings and many other celebratory events.

Aster Flower Care
With a little patience and some love, you’ll be able to easily care for your cut asters. Follow these simple yet effective tips for beautiful, long-lasting aster flowers. Hold the stems underwater and cut off one inch from the bottom at an angle. Also, keep your asters in fresh water and a mixture of flower food to ensure that they are nourished. Keep out of the direct sunlight, heat, and drafts. Upon arrival, strip away any foliage that will sit below the water level. This is to prevent cloudy water and stave off the growth of harmful bacteria.
