Glowing lavender blue flowers from late summer to early winter, on wand like stems to 90cm-1.5m depending on conditions. Ordinary soil in sun.
This has been a real star in late autumn for us, if you Chelsea-chop it then the flowering can be delayed as well as the height reduced. The flowers are fairly frost proof too so November flowers can be a reality.
Strong stems make it ideal to plant surrounded by lower growing perennials or ornamental grasses which also helps the Kalimeris as it doesn't seem to like too much direct competition.
Sometimes offerred as Kalimeris pinnatifida but that is quite different (and usually white).
