Filling out a pot completely with its willow-shaped leaves that turn yellow in fall, this compact selection bears brighter blue flowers over a longer period, emerging from unique navy blue buds. Low maintenance, easy to grow and trouble-free. Discovered in seedling block of A. tabernaemontana at Sunny Border Nursery.

Native to much of the eastern half of the U.S., this long-lived Amsonia features clusters of soft blue, star-shaped flowers above an airy clump of willow-like, green leaves that turn golden yellow in fall. Benefits from being cut back after flowering to promote a bushier habit. Elegant in mass plantings.
