Product Description

Star Grass - Hypoxis

 
Star Grass is a flowering plant which belongs to the Hypoxidaceae family. A native to the southern hemisphere Star Grass can be found mostly in South Africa in unperturbed, open grasslands. It is a popular addition to gardens in the Americas, Asia, Africa and Australia. In the United States, they can be found in the sun-belt and in regions surrounding Orlando, Florida. These plants thrive in moist to watery soil and prefer lots of sunlight and high humidity. Star Grass can grow to be 6 feet tall and 3 feet wide. This plant blooms in summer as a bright yellow blossom with seven petals that resemble a star, hence its name. These petals are a little hairy, especially on the undersides. The leaves are longer and thin and are sometimes sheathed together at the bass. While their lance-shape resembles that of bamboo leaves, these leaves can also be hairy. In the Americas, Star Grass is used as a colorful pop to the garden or porch pots, yet in Africa, this plant is used to make traditional medicine and a healing herbal tea. As a tea, this plant tastes a little sour. It is used in pharmaceutical preparations among Western medical practices. Star Grass is easy to grow in the right conditions. It grows best in climate zones 3 to 9 and requires full sunlight and high humidity. Star Grass will provide a burst of color to any warmer climate garden and can either be grown in larger bunches or stand alone plants making them very diverse for landscaping. Around 100 species of star grass existed as of 2013. While each species is very similar, some have a difference in the shape of petals and leaves and some can have a more golden, or lighter yellow blossoms.
