Kalimeris incisa (Japanese Aster) 'blue star' are widely grown in Europe but hardly known here in North America. This is a long-blooming perennial of the easiest possible care. It forms a compact mound of dark-green leaves, bearing small yellow-eyed pale blue-lavender daises from mid-summer into late fall. Great towards the front of a sunny border, and especially good for large massed plantings. Attractive to butterflies. Drought tolerant once established. Clumps are easily increased by dividing in the spring. 1 gal
