Lovely, Airy Flowers and Foliage

The best garden designs rely on contrast. Moving from rough to fine and dense to airy – mixing textures is an easy way to draw the eye along the garden path. Arkansas Blue Star (Amsonia hubrichtii) is a wonderful native plant to use in the front of the border to provide a tremendous amount of visual interest.

You’ll fall in love with the open, delicate foliage. The feathery fronds are bedecked with star-shaped periwinkle blue flowers in late spring. This is a butterfly magnet, and you’ll delight in how they flock to the tiny flowers.

You’ll also appreciate the performance in fall, when that lovely foliage turns blaze gold. Plant this in well-drained soils that receive adequate water for best results. It can handle a bit of partial shade, but you’ll get the best fall color in full sun.

This is a fine textured plant. Use it in front of ornamental grasses as a softer counterpart. It can set off a larger, rougher shrub such as ninebark just beautifully. Plant it as a single specimen plant or mass multiples as a tall edging plant in your mixed border for a stunning autumn display.

Gardeners across the country search for this popular native perennial, and we have it only in limited quantities. Please order today!
