Pink petals on top, fading to white toward the "beak"
Availability: In stock

In my view the prettiest! They vary quite a bit in coloring and come in different subspecies, this particular clone has pink petals on top, fading to white toward the "beak", ending first in yellow and finally to velvety maroon. For even more contrast and drama, the "beak" is violet. Like all Shooting Stars, this one likes moist in winter and spring, but on the dry side summer and fall, when they are dormant. They reportedly can be kept all dry in summer - in pots if you like - like summer dormant bulbs. Native throughout California, but mainly S Cal., we're not 100% sure to what zone they're actually hardy. We put zone 7 to be on the safe side, but it could easily be 6. One of the slowest to propagate.
