Ipheion uniflorum – Spring Starflower

This is a small herbaceous perennial growing from a bulb, flowering over a long period from later winter into spring. Six-pointed star shaped white flowers with a blue blush and blue centre line rise above shiny grass-like leaves.

This little gem provides a welcome point of interest at a time of year when there may be little other colour in the garden.
