Starry Campion belongs to a large genus that is related to carnations. Each of the frilled white petals of this scentless flower has 8-12 intricate narrow lobes. Pollination is mainly by moths, but the occasional bee will visit. This hardy, drought-tolerant plant reseeds itself, with older plants sometimes sprouting multiple stems from the deep taproot.
