Ipheion peregrinans 'Rolf Fiedler' (Rolf Fiedler Starflower) #5268

Zone: 7a to 10b,

Height: 5" tall

Culture: Sun to Part Sun

Origin: Uruguay

Pot Size: 3.5" pot (24 fl. oz/0.7 L)

(aka: Tristagma peregrinans) Ipheion 'Rolf Fiedler' is a selection of easy-to-grow Ipheion peregrinans that is a true star of the winter rock garden. The 5" long, narrow, glaucous green, allium-like foliage emerges in late winter, laying flat against the soil. Beginning for us in mid-March, the clumps are topped with 1" fluorescent, azure blue flowers. The slowly stoloniferous plants, which spread to 2' wide in 5 years, flower for two months in our garden. Ipheion 'Rolf Fiedler' is great when used with gold foliage or golden flowered bulbs in early spring.

Ipheion uniflorum 'Greystone' (Greystone Starflower) #8519

Zone: 6b to 9b,at least

Height: 8" tall

Culture: Sun to Part Sun

Origin: Argentina, South America

Pot Size: 3.5" pot (24 fl. oz/0.7 L)

This selection of Ipheion uniflorum comes from the NC garden of the late plantsman Norman Beal, who selected it for its large, pure white flowers. For us, the clumps of waxy grey-green foliage are topped in March and early April (NC) with stalks of white flowers that obscure the foliage. By late May, Ipheion 'Greystone' has gone dormant for the summer. We recommend dividing the clumps every 3-5 years and either sharing with your neighbors or starting a nursery...just kidding. A horticultural circumcision in late spring, a la Lorena Bobbitt, will prevent unwanted offspring.
