Small-flowered woodland star is a pretty, compact plant in the family Saxifragaceae that forms a ground covering mat. The flowers are born on 20-30 cm long flower stalks. They are star-shaped and pale pink. The entire plant dies back after flowering so it's good to plant it close to plants that can cover the gap after mid-summer, although it's important to take care that the plants aren't too vigorous so they don't block it out completely. It tolerates partial shade and needs fairly well drained soil. It has proved fairly hardy.
