The scoop on Ipheion Rolf Fiedler / Spring Starflower

A diminutive member of the lily family, star flowers are sweet and unusual additions to the spring garden. Great for layering with late crocuses and other early flowering bulbs, these add a sprinkling of plump light blue stars to edges, in rock gardens and along walkways and paths.

Why Grow Starflowers?

  • Easy to grow and tolerant of most soils
  • Flowers have a light spicy scent; foliage smells a bit like onion if bruised
  • Flowers are small, but full, not wispy
  • Naturalizes readily to form colorful colonies

Native to wide regions in the southwest portion of South America, ipheion performs well in most of the U.S. and partners perfectly with early blooming daffodils, such as Tete-a-Tete and February Gold.
