Plant Info

'Shooting Star' is one of the most desirable perennials to grow in a shady spot, making a large clump of slender leaves that are topped with 30cm stems holding achingly-beautiful pink flowers with swept back petals between March and April. The flowers even pack a fruity perfume that will infuse the air on a still, warm day.

Closely related to bedding primulas, this is a choice plant for growing in light or even full shade, as long as the soil is fairly moist (but not soaking wet). Why not try planting it in borders, rock gardens or under trees and shrubs?

A tough plant that heralds from North America, it will die back to ground level in summer but will remerge every spring. Note - this product dies back underground from August, but will shoot away again next March.

Product : Good size and vigorous. They responded to attention very well.
- Service rating : I ordered some plants and they took a while to arrive by which time the flowers had come to the end of their . and two of the plants were half dead and damaged. the plants were not labelled either which meant I could not identify them when making a complaint. I received a reply which said replacements on the way but so fat they have not arrived. Also ordered some Fircraker Begonias a few weeks ago and they have not arrived yet. very slow service
