One of the prettiest of the numerous cultivars now available, ‘Rolf’ forms a moderately expanding clump of blue-green leaves rising to only 4-5“ with fragrant, deep purple-blue streaked flowers fading to violet from fall here to early spring. Likes sun to part shade and appreciates summer water though doesn't depend on it. Particularly useful under the bright edges of shrubs where there is much root competition. Frost hardy in USDA zone 5.

A gift several years ago from Marion Jarvie, we grow this in a cold greenhouse and it puts on quite a display with big clear blue flowers. There are about ten species of Ipheion, although uniflora seems to be the only one in general cultivation, and Rolf Fielder is either a selection or hybrid of it.

These true blue beauties have enchanted gardeners since 1836! A bulbous perennial, this cultivar is bigger and deeper blue than other starflowers – So easy to grow in sun to light shade, poor soils, competes with roots; will even naturalize in a meadow/lawn! Blooms mid spring, sweetly fragrant, 4-8" tall.

(aka: Tristagma peregrinans) The easy-to-grow selection of Ipheion peregrinans is a true star of the winter rock garden. The 5" long, narrow, glaucous green allium-like foliage emerges in late winter, laying flat against the soil. Beginning for us in mid-March, the clumps are topped with 1" fluorescent azure blue flowers. The slowly stoloniferous plants, which spread to 2' wide patches in 5 years, flower for two months in our garden. Ipheion 'Rolf Fiedler' is great when used with gold foliage or golden flowered bulbs in early spring.
