Kalimeris incisa "Blue Star" (syn. Boltonia incisa)

This long-blooming, low maintenance beauty, with showy and the palest of blue ray flowers, grows to one and a half feet in full sun/partial shade. Not only is it easy to grow, but it often reblooms if the stems are cut after flowering. This clump forming perennial is just the ticket for a long summer bloom. Zones 5-9. Quarts.

Kalimeris pinnatifida
(Double Japanese Aster)

Given the right amount of sun, Kalimeris pinnatifida, or Double Japanese Aster, stands from two to three feet high and is smothered in double, one-inch white flowers with buttery yellow centers for a very long time in summer to early fall. bloom generously, but it is also long lived. Kalimeris pinnatifida does not reseed, but it is an accommodating spreader and definitely makes its presence known in the garden (but in a very good way). Sun/partial shade in Zones 6-9. Quarts.

Kalimeris yomena "Geisha"
(Variegated Japanese Aster)

Sold out for 2013, but will be back with a vengeance in 2014. Kalimeris yomena "Geisha, " variegated Japanese Aster, is grown more for its variegated foliage than for its flowers, but there are soft lavender/white, one-inch flowers in the bargain, too. Like its relative, Kalimeris pinnatifida, it is also a spreader, but that's about as far as the resemblance goes. The leaves are larger, jagged, and mottled green and gold, and the flowers are more aster-like than its relative. This perennial grows from two to three feet in full sun (foliage will be more gold in full sun) to partial shade in

Flower streets

It is a little housing tract, cute but working class, from the late 50's where all the streets are named after flowers: Aster, Begonia, Camellia, Daisy, etc. It was nice in 93 when I moved in; maybe 1/2 white 1/2 mexican but now all the white people have moved up and it is primarily hispanic. Which is fine but I have NO ONE to talk to because no one speaks English! I worked on my spanish for awhile but it was not going anywhere. Most of the women come from very traditional rural areas; they wear long skirts, bare feet, don't drive and buy vegetables off the truck that comes through every week
