Spring Starflower

Ipheion uniflorum

A bulbous perennial, reaching up to 2 x 2 feet.
The grassy foliage appears during autumn and persists until late spring or early summer after blooming to go dormant.
The flowers, up to 1 inch across, are bluish-white. They are borne during early spring.
Hardy zones 5 to 9 in full sun to partial shade on acidic well drained soil. Spring Starflower thrives in deciduous woodland conditions. The bulbs should be planted 3 inches deep and 6 inches apart. Divide clumps of bulbs during early spring if propagation is desired.
