Kalimeris incisa 'Blue Star'

Aster-False

This tidy, long blooming, hardy perennial presents very well in containers and can be shipped in bud and bloom for several months. Pale blue, daisy-like, self-cleaning flowers appear atop a relatively short mound of shiny, dark green foliage nearly all season. Very easy to grow; tolerates heat, humidity and drought.
