Symphyotrichum pilosum, previously known as Aster pilosa and commonly known as frost aster, is a common, weedy perennial wildflower common throughout large swathes of the eastern half of the United States. Called frost aster due to the frosty appearance of its stems covered in fine hairs, this aster typically grows to between two and four feet tall and produces white or pink-tinged daisy-like flowers with yellow centers; flowers blooms from mid-summer well into the fall.

Symphyotrichum pilosum is typically found in moist but well drained sites in full to part sun, which replicates its natural environment in disused agricultural fields or open woodland locations. Best used in naturalized plantings, meadows, or coastal areas, frost aster can show off its pollinator appeal, attracting bees and butterflies, as well as its hardiness, with tolerance to deer browsing, dry and wet soils, and moderate tolerance to salt spray and sandy soils.
