This north American species of Shooting Star is very hardy, with stately umbels of pink-purple, reflexed flowers in tall spires held above the light green leaves.

This plant is late suumer dormant in August or September, re-emerging in early spring. Hardiness rating H5. Organically grown in peat free compost.
