Symphyotrichum lowrieanum

Family:Asteraceae
Species:Symphyotrichum lowrieanum (Porter) G.L. Nesom
Common Name:Lowrie’s aster
Habitat:Dry rocky forested slopes, edges of forests, and occasionally fields. This species resembles S. cordifolium although it is distinct and is much less frequent than S. cordifolium. Symphyotrichum lowrieanum perhaps prefers more calcareous, drier, and more open habitats than S. cordifolium.
Associated Ecological Communities:**
Growth Habit:Forb/herb
Duration:Perennial
Category:Vascular
Plant Notes:Brouillet et al. (2006) states that the type of the basionym is conspecific with S. cordifolium and they do not recognize S. lowrieanum. They state that most specimens identified as S. lowrieanum are S. cordifolium although some appear to be the hybrid between S. cordifolium and S. laeve var. laeve. Symphyotrichum lowrieanum is maintained until further evidence is presented.
Taxonomic Notes:**
Status:Native, S4 (State Rank), G3G5Q (Global Rank), CoC: 4
