Amsonia hubrechtii Arkansas Blue Star
A favorite of garden designers, Arkansas Blue Star, Amsonia hubrecti, is grown for its star-like, powdery blue spring flowers and its ornamental narrow foliage that turns brilliant yellow in fall. Easy to grow. Missouri Botanical Gardens Plants of Merit.
A fantastic foliage plant, use it where you want its needle-like foliage to set off other plants with large leaves. Although technically not a native Missouri plant, it has naturalized in Missouri.
Plant in full sun in well draining soil. Cutting back the stems by about 6″ after flowering helps keep the stems upright and will shape the plant into an attractive foliage mound.
