Blue Star Amsonia, Amsonia illustris


Clusters 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!
