Red Wings Shooting Star

Red Wings Shooting Star

When it comes to landscaping and gardening, shady sites are often overlooked. And when they are planted, it is usually with the typical shade perennials found at big box stores. That's why we are so pleased with this new, and highly unusual offering—Red Wings Shooting Star. A native wildflower, it brings style and color to the darker areas of the landscape without needing a ton of attention. Red Wings' unique flower form and chic color palette make it a natural choice for jazzing up wooded sites, bringing color to shadowed slopes and brightening sun-dappled meadows. Plus, it is just as eye-catching, if not more so, in rock gardens and shaded beds.
