(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.
