Coming Spring 2022

Dodecatheon amethystinum

This native perennial consists of a set of green, smooth basal leaves with stalk of flowers during its vegetative growth period. Flowers bloom in late spring for roughly 2 weeks. The umbel may contain 3-20 purple to pink, nodding flowers. It may tolerate full sun as long as soil remains moist. By mid-summer, foliage dies back due to its ephemeral nature. In the wild, it’s often found in rocky forests, bluffs, hilly and mountainous areas and upland prairies.
