Well it's that time of year the Sun Stars are in bloom!
This is a beautiful Orange hybrid related to a Star-of-Bethlehem.
This particular flower was my first one. It took a rest last year, but
it is back strong.
If you landed here looking for care and feeding of your new plant
take a look at the Sun Star page. And my
earlier shot from the first time this one bloomed.
Most importantly, it's a perennial bulb, so No!... you did not kill it! It dies back every year
down to the bulb.
And pretty fast after it's done blooming!
If you're looking for one, they are available as live plants now. Or you can get bulbs in the fall.
I've had a few requests for sources of bulbs so I'll try to get some links online soon.
