A worthy addition to our smaller daisy-flowered perennials, this one shows off its power-blue flowers in June, earlier than its Kalimeris cousins in our garden. If it's happy (with reasonably fertile soil that's not too parched in the heat of summer), it fleshes out nicely and produces an impressive display of flowers.
