Ampelaster is a North American genus of flowering plants in the daisy family.

There is a single known species, Ampelaster carolinianus, known as climbing aster.[4] It is native to the southeastern United States, in the States of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina.[1][5][6][7]

Ampelaster carolinianus is unusual in the family in that it is a climber, using other plants to support its weight. Sometimes it uses adventitious roots to this end. Flower heads are 1-15 per branch, with both ray florets and disc florets, the flowers pale pink to rose-purple.[1]
