Asters are sometimes considered THE garden flowers in the fall season. But is it really safe to plant these pretty flowering perennials or are they poisonous?

Asters are completely non-toxic

Garden asters are non-toxic

The well-known garden asters such as borage asters, cushion asters, smooth leaf asters and mountain asters are non-toxic to humans. These asters also pose no danger to animals such as cats and rabbits.

Here are some more hints:

  • Flowers are decorative and edible, e.g. for serving food
  • Asters bloom from May to November
  • the more intensely colored the flowers are, the more aromatic they are
  • the leaves are also edible

Chrysanthemums are also often referred to as asters. That is also correct, because they belong to the asters. However, they are toxic to pets. So keep them away from pets and children!

tips

Asters that have only recently been bought should not be eaten as they are often still contaminated with pesticides and fungicides.
