Blue Star Amsonia, Amsonia illustris
of pale-blue, star-shaped flowers top the handsome stems of glossy green
foliage in summer. In fall and winter, the foliage turns a bright orange,
highlighting long dark pods of seeds and adding to garden interest. Will grow
successfully in many soils, in sun to partial shade. Plants stay localized, but
will eventually seed smaller clumps around main stand. Beautiful when other
plants have died back. A strong garden performer that won’t disappoint!
