The cheerful white stars have a soft mauve blush and proliferate over the strappy, mid green foliage.
Tough, enduring and virtually fool proof, these bulbs are real winners.
They are easy to plant and can be left in the ground where they will slowly multiply, bringing you years and years of joy.
Spring Star Flower blooms open for an impressive amount of time, from late winter right through spring. For us it is as early as July and as late as November depending on where they are in our garden (those in shade tend to flower later).
Spring Star Flowers are a good choice for first time gardeners, or children because the results are fast and rewarding.
Plant them in a sunny position in any well drained soil. Water in then sit back and wait for spring! The mid green, clumping foliage is narrow and forms a handsome clump.
Grow Spring Star Flowers in pots, the edge of garden beds, along pathways or in rockeries. They are also amazing in ‘bulb lasagnes’ when they are planted over the top of bigger bulbs such as daffodils or tulips, you can layer bulbs both in the ground and in pots.
This is our recommendation for the best display, keeping in mind bulbs look best when planted nice and close together.
