The cheerful white stars have a soft mauve blush and proliferate over the strappy, mid green foliage.
Spring Star Flowers are a good choice for first time gardeners or children because the results are simple, fast and rewarding.
These bulbs are tough, enduring and virtually fool proof. They are easy to plant and can be left in the ground where they will gradually multiply as they bring you years and years of joy.
Grow Spring Star Flowers in pots, the edge of garden beds, along pathways or in rockeries, they can fit in pretty well anywhere. They make a great choice for bulb lasagnes – this is where you layer larger bulbs at the bottom of your planting and then the smaller ones on top. This serves to extend your season and add plenty of colour.
Spring Star Flower blooms open for an impressive amount of time, creating a welcome sight in late winter, then lasting right through to spring. For us the season is as early as July and as late as November, depending on where they are in our garden (shaded ones begin and later).
Plant them in a sunny to light shade position in any well drained soil. Water in, then sit back and wait for spring!
This is our recommendation for the best display, keeping in mind bulbs look best when planted nice and close together.
