Spring Starflower

Ipheion uniflorum

A perfect partner for daffodils, spring starflower grows just 3-4 inches tall and is decorated with white or purple-blue spicy-scented flowers in spring. Plant the bulbs near clusters of daffodils to carpet the soil around the sunny bloomers with pretty star-shape flowers. Spring starflower naturalizes rapidly. Its grasslike foliage makes it a pretty complement in a meadow where its naturalizing habits are often encouraged. It is considered one of the easiest bulbs to grow.

Plant spring starflower in well-drained soil and full sun or part shade. Plant bulbs 2-3 inches deep and about 2 inches apart. The plants will go dormant in late spring. Foliage will die back, and the plant will essentially disappear underground until the following spring.
