Starfish Iris (Ferraria crispa) wakes up our senses with
late winter to early spring blossoms that almost defy description! Their frilly
edges, spotted petals, and orange anthers are a beautiful addition to any
garden design. When happy, this South African native will spread to form clumps
that will appear each spring, die back in summer, and reappear again in fall.
With a lovely vanilla scent, place them where you can get close to this special
flower. Plant bulbs in freely draining soil, in full sun, 2-4"
deep. It is not frost tolerant, so in colder zones, Starfish Iris can be a
lovely container plant to be brought indoors over winter. Divide plant every
3-5 years to increase flowering. Starfish Irish is deer resistant, but will
attract hummingbirds and butterflies. (16-18" tall x 8-10 wide)
