Shooting Star

Dodecatheon Meadia

“Shooting Star” is a great choice of a common name for an uncommon plant. Blooming midApril through the end of June in the Chicago area, the dainty pink, lilac, or white blooms are borne on 9″ to 15” stalks above the leaves. The flowers have petals that are bent backwards to look like a “shooting star.” Grow in moist, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade.
