starry Solomon's plume

Rising from the ground in late winter these amply leafed stalks 12 inches tall will be topped by delicate star shaped creamy white flowers March through May. Dormant by the end of summer. Part to heavy shade, needs water in the spring. Spreading but not invasive, a good addition to a natural woodland garden. Bay Area native.
