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.
