(syn: Maianthemum stellatum) I'm fascinated as to why this native groundcover isn't more widely cultivated...especially considering that it's native to all of the continental US except the southeastern "gang of 8," from NC across to Texas. Smilacina stellata makes a tough groundcover with 20" stems arising from the underground rhizomes. Each stem is clothed with 15-18 blue-green leaves that are spirally arranged around the stem. From mid-April until mid-May, the stalks are topped with short but attractive spikes of small white flowers. Although Smilacina stellata loves moisture, it is incredibly drought-tolerant. This selection is from the Indiana Dunes region.
