Description: Amsonia is an underused perennial in the modern landscape that boasts multi-seasonal interest. In the spring, powdery blue star-shaped flowers cover the plant, attracting early butterflies. During the summer months, Blue Star’s fine, feathery foliage dances in the wind, making it a great backdrop to summer blooming perennials. In the fall, the foliage changes to a vibrant yellow-gold, creating a fabulous contrast against the surrounding landscape. Narrow Leaf Blue Star is best grown in full to part shade gardens with well-draining soil. This perennial performs best with shearing after blooming to promote a compact habit.
