Amsonia tabernaemontana/Blue Stars

Amsonia tabernaemontana/Blue Stars
Perennial
Height:2-3'
Light:Full Sun-Part Shade
Flowering Time:Early Summer
Zone:3-9

Light blue flowers cover the bushy plant for weeks in late spring-early summer. Bright golden fall color. Durable, trouble-free plant. Easily grown in average, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Tolerates some drought. When grown in full sun, plants often require no pruning or staking though they tend to lean. When grown in some shade and/or in rich soils, however, plants tend to become more open and floppy and often require staking or pruning. For a neater appearance, particularly for shade-grown plants, consider cutting back stems by 1/2 to 1/3 after flowering to promote bushy growth and, if desired, a more rounded foliage mound.
