Grass of Parnassus, Parnassia asarifolia, or Bog Stars, is a handsome, tall, wetland plant with unusual white flowers with green veins, very distinctive. Each flower has four petals. The leaves are not grass like, but rather broad pointed and dark green. It prefers growing in consistently wet, loose soils, appreciating shade and tolerating full sun in cool, northern zones. It flowers from Summer through Fall. It generously produces seeds, and spreads through out the collection. It is outstanding among pitcher plants and a plant of merit in the bog garden.
