Product Description

Otherwise known as the spring starflower, Ipheion uniflorum produces exquisite star-shaped blooms in early spring. Each stem bears a single, sweet-scented flower (reflecting the Latin uniflorum - single flower), with six pointed petals and colours varying through shades of pale silvery-blue to lilac. The narrow leaves appear before the flowers and, being a close relation to alliums, give off an onion-like aroma when crushed.

This small, herbaceous perennial is perfect for mixing with other low-level, spring-flowering bulbs in rock and alpine gardens, borders, beds and containers, and is also good for underplanting shrubs and roses. It naturalises easily, rewarding you with more profuse displays year after year.

Easy to grow, the bulbs will thrive in full sun or partial shade, preferring a sheltered position with moderately fertile, well-drained soil.

Supplied as a pack of 50 bulbs, size 4/5 ready for planting in the autumn.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Plant as early as you can in autumn so that the bulbs can establish a good root system before the weather becomes too cold.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, alpine gardens or pots, or scatter through grass to naturalise.
  • Try growing in pots in an unheated greenhouse or conservatory to enjoy long-flowering displays.
  • If planted in pots, be sure to water frequently and keep moist.

 

Care Guide

  • Plant at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart, in moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil.
  • Leave in the ground once they die back – they will come back bigger and better each year.
  • While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.
  • Add a protective mulch in very cold conditions.
