Illicium Star Flower Orion

Description
Orion is an easy-growing little hybrid that will fit into many gardens. It adapts to some difficult soil types—both the drought-prone and the boggier spots—and it thrives in a nice range of lighting conditions. This star flower blooms heavily in spring and lightly in summer, with brilliant white and green flowers that look like precious little stars. The habit stays compact and manageable. Orion is favored by butterflies and beneficial pollinators, creating picturesque woodland garden scenes. Deer rarely show interest in this plant. Illicium hybrid 'NC1H2' PPTBS
