In the spring leaves emerge from the ground in a whorl and fold out flat over the surface of the ground. The flower umbels grow up to 12 inches tall with over 40 small flowers. The flowers are star-shaped in a soft white to a pale pink color. Use in well draining soils in full sun, water when dry. Plants grow into collections of 10 or more plants over time. Goes dormant in midsummer.
