Eastern shooting star received the Royal Horticultural Society’s award of garden merit in 1993. This spring ephemeral is a tearjerker. Well, it’s flowers are gorgeous and remind me of big tear drops for some reason. It is not a native to New England, however its native range is as close as New York and Pennsylvania. This plant does take years to establish by seed in the wild so bringing into our options feels like the right things to do. Many native bees visit this plant when it is blooming in early spring. Wonderful garden plant for shade gardens. Deer avoid and it will tolerate sun in cooler temperatures with moist soil.
