Preferring wetter soils, Aster puniceus is often found in soggy thickets, sedge meadows, fens and calcareous seeps. It can be nearly as tall as New England Aster with similarly large flowers.  All parts of the plant are popular with a wide variety of insects. The two-month blooming period begins in late summer.  Swamp Aster is calcareous, needing an alkaline soil with a pH of 7 to 8.
