Starlight - starry, upfacing flowers creates quite a bright spot; great with Allium christophii; 20"-24".

Native to our own west coast, the leaves of this plant often disappear before the flowers bloom. With striking, dark blue to violet, upfacing starry umbels blooming on leafless 12"-18" stalks, this is the 'queen' of the early summer cut flowers. It's best to plant this hardy perennial in full sun or partial shade with lots of companions around its feet; blooms late spring/early summer. 6+cm corms; 8-10 per sq. ft.; whz 5-9.
