Shooting StarDodecatheon meadia 1-2' tall. A spring-blooming ephemeral woodland native to eastern and central North America.
Leafless stalks with pink-to-white cyclamen-like flowers arise from light green basal rosettes. An excellent choice for naturalizing in both rock and woodland gardens. Dodecatheon goes dormant in late summer and disappears entirely, so it’s best to mark location with a stake. These will not produce flowers their in the first growing season. Be patient and expect mid-spring to midsummer blooms in the second or third year of growth.
Plant in light shade in moist well-drained woodland soil. Winter mulch is recommended; let nature’s mulch of autumn leaves do its job. MOFGA-certified organic, grown at Ripley Farm. Z4. Maine Grown. (bare-root crowns)
