A botanical ethnic-cleansing in Asia saw Kalimeris species kicked out of the genus Aster, where they have since labored in a lonely obscurity. Won't you help by adopting one of these poor displaced souls? Just pennies a day will provide food and a home for a poor starving Kalimeris. You'll be rewarded with a long summer of delightful, butterfly-attracting flowers and by knowing that you did a good thing.

The mum-like blooms arrive in late summer and stick around into fall. Kalimeris looks great as a specimen, in a mass, or interplanted among other perennials. Gardeners can also cut Kalimeris flowers for indoor arrangements or for drying. As it ages, kalimeris plants spread to form an attractive colony. Once they have spread out for a few years, you can easily divide kalimeris and have plenty to share with your friends.
