Shooting Star Plant 3 For $12.99 Description

Shooting Star Plant

Shooting Star Plant, Dodecatheon meadia is a famous herbaceous perennial known as a shooting star that grows in late spring and early summer. Native to North America or the Eastern United States, low elevation areas are usually favorable for cultivation. The wildflower usually grows among woodland plants on rocky wooded slopes, bluff ledges, glades, meadows, grasslands, etc. Such perennials propagate 1 to 2 feet tall.

The same goes for horizontal spread. The member of the primrose family prefers to grow in moist or well-drained soil. The soil types include loam, clay, sand, and chalk requiring total sun exposure or part shade for efficient plant growth, while the PH varies from acidic to alkaline.

The blossoms arise from the rosette of lance-shaped leaves, primarily light pink, white to bright pink, and purple colors are some variable ranges. The flower scapes are 18 inches long, bearing an umbel of 8-30 nodding leafless flowers, with each 1 inch long has five reflexed petals with a cluster of yellow stamens uniting downward at a single point that looks like a shooting star falling on earth.

The deciduous plant exhibits no bloom in the early days, like the 1st year, as it requires development initially, while the growth in the third year or after seems to be at the peak. To obtain the most exemplary flower display, cutting stems in early spring seems preferable. The average water supply is essential for optimum growth rate. These perennials undergo dormancy while summers and viably escape drought conditions. The cultivars require no fertilizers as they are genetically adaptable to native soils ensuring considerable extension. However, the addition of compost can bring successful results in poor soil.

Dormancy facilitates the division and seems the right time to dig up the corms and divide. We are leaving the space of 1 inch among them while planting impacts positively. 

Shooting Star Plant is appealing in ornamental gardens when placed near borders and beds, complimenting other blossoms.

They propagate through seeds that need moisture and attract bees and pollinators with vibrant petals. Moderate spring temperatures and humidity in the form of rainfall favor the flourishing of fruits. Some insects, caterpillars, and larvas may appear to feed on the plant.

Removing old plant debris from time to time is a good step to secure the growing parts from any disease at the time of establishment. These plant species need protection from deer and elk in early spring as they feed on shoots. It is an evergreen plant of merit and a great nectar source for bumblebees.
