Shooting star, sometimes called American cowslip, is a spring ephemeral wildflower from the Primula family. They have primula-like habit, smooth green leaves, and cyclamen-like blooms. This US native is generally found growing in moist meadows, prairies, or open woodlands. Easy to grow in the garden in part shade in moist but well-drained soil. Best used in the shady native plant garden, alpine garden, woodland garden, or for naturalizing. Plants go summer dormant.
