A neat spring-flowering, shrub-like perennial with glossy green leaves and truly unique flowers. ‘White Star’ brings a one-of-a-kind bicolor beauty to the garden in late spring. Five-petaled flowers have a clean white star painted onto a background of periwinkle blue – a scarce color in the perennial palette. Small, shiny green leaves form low cushiony mounds. Cute, compact plant is easy to grow, flowering in late spring. Brought to Rozanne and Friends® by discoverer Danny Takao, California.
