Product Description

Also known as the Alpine Shooting Star, the Dodecatheon Red Wings provides an abundance of deep magenta flowers, which look like tiny birds diving in flight. Near-black to purple tips blend to yellow and then white before blending into magenta.Emerging from a clump of soft oval to egg-shaped leaves, stalks rise up to a foot above the foliage. The swept back pink petals look similar to those of a close relative: the Cyclamen. However, unlike the Cyclamen, the Dodecatheon grows in summer.Its tiny bobbing flower heads are intriguing, and the size of this plant means it is never cloying or overwhelming. The perfect addition to a woodland or rock garden. Top sized bulbs supplied. Flowers May to July. Height 30cm.

Growing at a glance…

Dodecatheon will benefit greatly from protection from strong winds. They would also benefit from a good winter mulch (bark is ideal) to protect them from intense cold weather and frost. Plant in areas that provide shelter and semi-shade. Ideal for damp borders or in pots.
