A Lovely Mix of Pastels
Pink, periwinkle blue, and white Ipheion are dainty sparkling treasures in the spring garden. Starflowers will quickly naturalize to form impressive ‘constellations’ – a perfect underplanting around shrubs and deciduous trees. The bright grass-like foliage will go dormant when hot weather arrives. Flowers and foliage have a mild spicy fragrance.
