Kalimeris incisa 'Blue Star' (Japanese aster)

Kalimeris incisa 'Blue Star'

Japanese aster

A wonderful pot plant with long retail shelf life and rewarding garden/landscape performance. It loves heat and humidity and breezes through a drought like a champ. Single one inch, pale blue daisy-like flowers on a compact mound of green all summer. Resembles Felicia or Brachycomb - but it's hardy! Very popular in Europe and deserves much more recognition here.

Showiest in perennial beds in single or mass plantings.
