Lithodora ‘White Star’ is a neat spring-flowering, shrub-like perennial with glossy green leaves and truly unique flowers. ‘White Star’ brings a one-of-a-kind bicolor beauty to the garden in late spring. Five-petaled flowers have a clean white star painted onto a background of periwinkle blue – a scarce color in the perennial palette. Small, shiny green leaves form low cushiony mounds. Cute, compact plant is easy to grow, flowering in late spring. Brought to Must Have Perennials by discoverer Danny Takao, California.
