2011 Perennial Plant of the Year ™
(What's my zone?)
Zone: 4 to 9Perennial
|Blooms late spring to early summer|
Cultivar Notes - 'Narrow Leaf Blue Star'
Very narrow, needle-like leaves line the stems like bottle brushes. From late spring-early summer, clusters of small, light blue, star-shaped flowers are borne above the short mound of ferny foliage.
Genus Notes - Amsonia
Amsonia adds a billowy, finely textured element to the landscape. It grows into a dense mass, much like a small shrub. The cool blue flowers can be useful in toning down adjacent flower colors. Native clump-forming perennial found along the woodlands edge or river banks. Spectacular spring bloom with clusters of 5-petaled star-shaped flowers. Grows from semi-woody rootstocks. Prefers loamy well-drained soil.
