Product Details

Masses of delightful, 1”, Daisy-like flowers appear all summer on this aptly named, long-blooming Japanese Aster, attracting pollinators to meadow gardens and sunny borders. The lavender-blue ray petals surround a golden center that lures pollinators. Plants form compact mounds and will tolerate clay soil.

Kalimeris is a genus of hardy clump-forming herbaceous perennials in the Asteraceae family. Originating in open meadows in northeast Asia, they are counterparts to native North American native asters (Symphotrichum and Eurybia spp.) and Boltonias and are similar in culture and appearance.


Every state has agricultural regulations that restrict the shipment of certain plants. We're sorry, but we cannot ship this item to the following states: California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington.


The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

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
