Just found this earth star beneath a conifer. Don't know which species but I've never found one before. Anyone know the species?
Grow in fertile well-drained soil with partial shade.
It is relatively difficult to obtain as it is propagated by grafting.
Pests, diseases or disorders
Honey fungus may be a problem, although this genus is fairly resistant. Conifer spinning mite may cause defoliation. Prone to adelgids.
