Product Description

Among the first bloomers of spring, you just can't help but smile when these lovely little blooms poke out of the ground. King of the Striped has a beautiful bicolor pattern of purple and white. Early pollinators will be happy to have the food source. Plant in droves for the best visual effect, but also lovely in borders, rock gardens and even containers. King of the Striped naturalizes easily—year after year it returns, each time a little more than before. Very low maintenance and not bothered by deer.
