Star grass can often be mistaken for grass but when the spring and summer seasons come, its slender green leaves thrive and bloom with starry bright yellow flowers. In the wild, this delicate woodland plant can be found in soils that are mesic. Often spotted in prairie openings, it can be easily grown in garden beds given the adequate care. This warm-season perennial flower is well-suited in rock gardens yet it also adapts nicely to clay or sand soil. Its preference is full sun to partial shade and as long as you don't overwater, it can spread into extensive beautiful colonies that grow vigorously over time. As long as properly controlled, it is not invasive.The blooms that sit atop the hard, hairy grass-like stems, often reaching about 12 inches in height, attract pollinators like butterflies and bees. These creatures are beneficial in any landscape as it is an evidence of a healthy ecosystem. After all, plants and wildlife are closely dependent to each other.
