Description

Height x Spread:  15cm x 30cm

Commonly known as starflower, Ipheion 'Alberto Castillo' is a summer deciduous plant, which means it dies back during the summer.  There is no reason to panic though, as the plant will reappear during the following winter.  Just remember not to dig it up!  This perennial produces masses of dainty white honey scented flowers during late winter and early spring over narrow grass-like, onion scented, green foliage.

Perfect for some very early season colour, this plant thrives in gravel gardens, alpine beds or containers. Just ensure you give it a sunny spot with well-drained, fertile soil.

Available for Mail Order from January - March
