It's got star power!

Doubled blooms are similar to those of 'Snowflake', but the individual petals are pointed instead of rounded. The result is a beautiful, lacy panicle - and a very showy plant. It's a fun way to add some unexpected drama to woodland gardens.

  • Beautiful, has the same bloom form as Snowflake, but sepals are pointed. Very white, likes shade and good drainage.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
