Quick Overview:

This species of Asteromea (Kalimeris) features 1-2" diameter, daisy-like flowers with purple-tinged rays and yellow stamens. Flowers bloom profusely in open clusters on an upright, bushy plant, typically growing 2-3′ tall. Pinnately lobed, light green leaves (to 6" long) form a basal rosette, with smaller leaves (sometimes entire) forming on the flower stalks. Somewhat similar in appearance to Boltonia. Valued for its long, early summer to fall bloom period.
