(syn: Asteromoea mongolica) A favorite of the late garden writer Elizabeth Lawrence, this wonderful, slowly spreading perennial arises in spring with 20" tall stems clothed with apple-green, serrated foliage, then topped with creamy white, fully double, 1" chrysanthemum-esque flowers throughout the summer...whew! If you look closely enough, you will notice a light lavender blush to the lower ring of petals...that's for you designer types. Kalimeris pinnatifida blends well into any perennial border as it works to soften dramatic color contrasts.
