Growing Kalimeris

Plant Kalimeris in average, moderately moist, but well-drained soil in full sun. They are drought-tolerant once established, but are subject to root rot in poorly drained soil. Tidy clumps with long-lasting abundant blooms are easy and generally trouble-free, even where summers are hot and humid.

Pinch or chop back stems in early summer for compact, densely branched plants with more flowers. Shear stems after flowering to encourage a second flush of bloom in fall. Like asters and Boltonias, birds will feed on seeds in fall and winter and they may re-seed in the garden
