This is my new favorite plant. It has bloomed all summer long on discreet new growth, and is still going strong in late August in zone 6b. The foliage is pretty and holds its flowers similar to the effect from Zagreb or Moonbeam Coreopsis. The flowers differ from Coreopsis, though, in that Kalimeris's resemble miniature daisies. The soft lavender- blue color complements so many other plants.
Updated April 2013 to say these plants returned to my garden beautifully! I'm looking forward to another season of this lovely aster.
