Simple and beautiful.
Ipheion 'Rolf Fiedler' is a superb, early spring starflower cultivar which produces an abundance of deep blue flowers from February to April, depending on the region.
The generous blooms, nearly 3 cm in diameter, flourish above the foliage.
Native to the southern hemisphere, (Uruguay), the Ipheion genus has opposite growth patterns to the herbaceous plants of the temperate regions in the northern hemisphere. It starts growing in the autumn and flowers at the beginning of the year.
And in the summer. It enters into summer dormancy throughout the hot, dry period. During this time, you need to keep the growing substrate sufficiently moist.
It requires little care and naturalises easily, so it is suitable to decorate a rockery and the edges of shady borders together with helleborus, botanical tulips, Narcissus, Pulmonaria and primroses. Looks great in pots or troughs.
Of only average hardiness (-10°C), you need to grow it in full sun in a continental climate with winter protection of a mulch of dried leaves.
