Laurentia axillaris ‘Pink Star’ (also known as Isotoma axillaris) is a profusely flowering herbaceous perennial plant with pink starry flowers from spring to autumn. It prefers damp well drained soils, full sun to part shade, and needs protection from frosts. It is a hardy and trouble free plant for long lasting floral displays, and has an attractive mounding habit. It is good for borders, rockeries, mass planting and for container growing. The spent flowers shed naturally, a great low maintenance feature of this pretty plant. Water regularly in warm weather, and feed with a native fertiliser in spring. The sap can cause skin irritation, and should also be kept away from the eyes as it can cause temporary blindness. Also toxic to stock.
