Goldenaster has sturdy, hairy stems encircled by gray-green lance-shaped leaves that decrease in size as they ascend the stem.

Each leaf has a half-twist, giving the compact clumps a curly look. Clear yellow flowers start to open in late summer and continue into fall. It is better adapted to hot climates. Needs no special attention and rarely requires division. Propagate by division or seed.
