DescriptionEven though this is a wildflower, it does have some unique growing conditions that you’re going to want to mimic as closely as you can to ensure your plant thrives. It’s not common to have it in your cottage gardens, but you can try and see if you have success with it. Just be careful as it tends to spread.This is very low maintenance once you manage to get them established and thriving. The only general maintenance and grooming you’ll have to do for them is if you don’t want them to continue spreading throughout your yard. If not, you’ll deadhead the flowers before they turn into seed pods to help prevent the plants from self seeding.As this is a woodland flower, it loves to be in a space where it gets light shade or dappled sunlight for between six and eight hours a day at minimum. The star flower is winter-hardy as well in planting zones three to seven. Also, just because the star flower can tolerate temperatures that soar above 100°f, it really prefers to be in an environment that has cooler summer months.To keep this plant happy, it has to be in acidic but well draining soil that you work to keep slightly moist as it would get in the natural woodland setting. You can mix in peat moss or sand to ensure it has great drainage.The key to watering this plant is to do so in a way that mimics being in a woodland environment. So, the soil should be consistently moist but never soaked or soggy. You should water occasionally but deeply, and you want to water in the early morning hours or in the evening so the water has a few hours to soak in instead of evaporating in the sun. It’s common to apply a topdressing of organic mulch or compost to keep the plant roots cool and help retain moisture.This plant will self-seed if you leave it to its own devices, and it also spreads underground using rhizomes. If you want to grow the star flower from seed, all you have to do is sow them directly into your prepared soil in the autumn after the first frost hits and cover them with a light layer of mulch. The seeds require cold stratification over the winter months to germinate. They should start to come up in the spring months, and they’ll spread as long as you let them.
