Ipheion Uniflorum "Rolf Fiedler"

My small patch of Ipheion Uniflorum "Rolf Fiedler" is blooming in the sunset flowerbed. 

This variety of spring starflower is such a vibrant blue. While the whole clump is only 5" X 5" and just 4" in height, it is such a showstopper! How can you not love that stunning shade of blue?

Considering that my starflower patch was started with only 4 bulbs, planted back on January 8th of 2012, it has expanded quite nicely. It would be very interesting to dig up this patch in July when it is dormant, to see how many bulbs it has naturalized to over the past 4 Springs. Such a wonderful little plant to enjoy each Spring.
