HistoryEdit

Aster is the Latin word for "star." This refers to the flower's star-like shape.

In ancient times, people associated this herb with the goddess Venus. They believed that when this flower burned, the fragrance of the leaves drove away serpents.

Another myth states that asters were created from the stardust when Virgo looked down from the heavens and cried. Virgil, the poet, thought that the altars of gods were covered with these flowers.

Also, asters were placed on the graves of French soldiers to represent afterthought.

Chinese symbolismEdit

In China, these flowers signify fidelity.
