NARROW LEAF BLUESTAR
Plant in sun in moist, average or dry soil. This is sometimes called ‘Arkansas Blue Star’ because of its discovery in Arkansas, and its star-shaped flowers that bloom May to June. (Flowers last longer when grown with afternoon shade.) It has wonderful texture, the narrowest and laciest foliage of the amsonias. Use amsonia in rock gardens, borders, and woodland settings. It is very effective when massed. Cut back about 6″ after flowering for a fuller and neater plant. An Illinois native.
