Kalimeris

Daisy Mae

This is a tough perennial that consistently pushed through our hot summers with no maintenance. Also called Japanese Aster, you can use Kalimeris in borders either in small groupings or mass plantings. Daisy Mae works well for cottage gardens, naturalized areas and rock gardens.

Butterflies love the showers of white blooms. An essential plant for pollinator gardens.
