A member of the Lily family, Spring starflower is a perennial that spreads 6-12 inches and thrives in zones 5+. Blooming in late winter or early spring in full sun to part shade, the flower color ranges from pale blue to white, depending on the amount of sun and other conditions.

Thanks for the lovely comment, Betty! Where are you off to next? I’m trying to figure out plans for my own travel down your way. I’m not sure if April will work just yet; how is your May looking?
