Description

This is a rare red-flowered Shooting Star! Unique nodding red flowers are produced in spring. Traditionally this plant is a bright woodland or alpine perennial, living around rocky areas. This plant grows the quickest during spring and fall, when temperatures are cool. Plants do well when placed under deciduous tree that allow sun in the spring, before the leaves emerge, and then provide shade through the summer heat. Plants are very hardy!

Type: Perennial

Height: 8-12"

Location: Part sun or part shade

Hardiness zones: 4-8

Seeds per pack: 5 Rare seeds

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Sow the seeds on the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature for 4 weeks. If they have not germinated after 4 weeks then a cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. Germination is in 14-60 days after the warming period. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
