Shooting Star Plant 3 For $12.99 Description

 

Shooting Star Plant 

Shooting Star, or Pseuderanthemum laxiflorum as it is called scientifically, is a unique flowering shrub that's worth growing.

This plant is prized for its lustrous green leaves and ongoing supply of star-shaped purple flowers from mid-spring to early winter. Shooting Star will add lots of vibrancy to your home garden environment. Shooting Star is a spring ephemeral, which means that it will peak into its blooms during the spring and summer, yet goes dormant after this. Shooting Star is a relatively small shrub, famous for planting along walkways or other shrubs and mixed with perennials in a frost-free region where it can grow to 4 feet tall and wide. Shooting Star will flower throughout the summer, making it a popular annual for garden beds, borders, and container gardens. 

  

Care and Maintenance

 Shooting Star plants will grow and blooms best in light shade and require regular watering, especially during long periods of hot, dry weather. Even though Shooting Star is a tropical shrub that loves the heat, it does not thrive in drought. Applying 2 to 3-inches of mulch over the soil after planting your Shooting Star, will keep the ground (or container) moist. Shooting Star must be fertilized once or twice yearly to maintain its profuse blooms. Fertilize in spring and summer using an all-purpose fertilizer as per the instructions on the package. Prune your Shooting Star at any time of the year to keep it growing faster.

Considerations

The purple species of Shooting Star plant is common in garden cultivation, yet other cultivars are popular, including the: Aphrodite' bears dark pink flowers twice the size of the purple species plant.  The Goliath' will produce larger flowers on taller stalks. The 'Queen Victoria' bears light pink flowers with yellow bands at its base.

 Shooting Star flowers tend to be whiter or lighter in southern climates, bearing darker pink or purple hues in the northern regions.

Shooting Star is a unique and colorful addition to your home garden landscape; plant some today. 

 

Shooting Star is now available at TN Nursery at low prices and fast shipping.
