Commonly known as Shooting Stars, this unusual perennial deserves to be more widely grown in UK gardens. The spring blooms are similar to Cyclamen, with reflexed petals and a lovely deep pink colour, but carried on much taller, 45cm (18") stems. Dodecatheon meadia loves a cool, shady spot where it will add a splash of colour to spring planting schemes. By midsummer, the rosettes of foliage begin to die back and the plant enters a summer resting period before reappearing the following spring. Perfect for damp borders, woodland areas and pondside planting schemes. Height and Spread 45cm (18").

Grow Dodecatheon in any rich, well drained soil that remains reliably moist throughout the summer months. Choose a position in sun or semi shade.
Feed and water regularly until fully established. Protect Dodecatheon from slugs and snails who are partial to the young foliage. Lift and divide overcrowded plants in spring.
