“Shooting Stars”

Dodecatheon media ‘Goliath’ “Shooting Stars”

This delightful native wildflower of the American prairies & East rates a 10+ in the perfectly beautiful department! Enchanting, rocket shaped flowers of pink to magenta with yellow & brown, pointy centers are held in umbels (up to 15 at a time) atop strong, upright stems (to 27”) mid to late Spring. The fresh green, oval leaves form a clumping rosette that goes dormant in Summer. A reliable perennial, “Shooting Stars” is not hard to grow. Though not fussy about soil, it does prefer rich & moist for best show. Perfect under a deciduous tree or naturalized in a woodland environment.
