As any young child will tell you, a star shape has 5 points. As a kindergarten teacher teaching shape identification, I never had to teach the star or the heart shape to any 5 year old. It seems that those are the 2 shapes kids always pick up first. My students were always fascinated by the number of flowers that have the star shape. In my gardens now, I'm seeing lots of stars blooming.
|Star of Bethlehem (or SOB - very invasive)|
|blue creeping phlox|
|amsonia "blue star"|
|virginia creeper - not a bloom, but it will certainly be a "star" when it puts on its fall colors|
Please head over to Clay and Limestone to see some of Gail's wildflowers and check out links to
