Product Description

When Stars of India was first cultivated, it was a popular Victorian potted plant. You can still use it that way, especially if you've got a mixed container garden as a focal point in your landscape. This will add some fill and color to your container garden in mid to late summer, when the display might otherwise look a little worn out. But the big benefit of Stars of India is that it thrives in shade to part shade. A shade flower that thrives in containers is the ideal choice for a hanging basket. On your porch or under a pergola, you'll get a nice color pop from this one. Stars of India is bright and colorful over deep, dramatic foliage, and it forms in a nice, tidy mound. In a basket it'll hang down over the edges, looking abundant and bountiful like you're gardening in paradise. Want this color out in your garden? It does well in a shady border, too. Achimenes
