Star of Bethlehem

Zone 5 | Toots1214 added on April 30, 2018 | Answered

I cannot believe you wrote an article promoting this bulb/plant or even suggest planting in woodland. This plant is highly invasive and a nightmare to gardeners. It will take over your garden and lawn. You should take down this article so inexperienced gardeners don’t get sucked into planting this. I spend hours every year digging it up so it does not take over my flower beds!!!!!

Keeping this plant in a container does not stop it’s invasive behavior. If the seed heads are not deadheaded IMMEDIATELY, the seeds are in the wind and germinate EVERYWHERE! Do not plant this flower!
