A fine source of blue color for the bulb garden.

Starflower 'Jessie' distinctive color and jewel-like six-petaled cupped blooms give gardens a sense of joy and pride during the latter half of spring. This flower is ideally suited for borders in full sun or light shade as Starflower 'Jessie' is easy to grow as well as resistant to deer, rabbits and pests.

Since the Ipheion family is related to the Allium family, the Starflower 'Jessie' flower releases a sweet floral fragrance one expects from such exquisite blooms along with the unmistakable spice of onion.
