Amsonia tabernaemontana var. montana
Cat# 1008 Dwarf Bluestar is a beautiful plant for spring flowers, summer foliage, and fall color. Its dense terminal clusters of pale, steel blue, star-shaped flowers appear in late spring and resemble very fine garden phlox heads. Grown in full sun, Dwarf Bluestar forms a full clump to 2 feet in height but when grown in the shade, plants are taller and less dense. Summer foliage is willowy and medium green, and fall color is a good rich gold. Give this perennial average to good soil. It is long-lived, trouble-free, and should be used more often. Good companions include Columbine, Alumroot, Beardtongue, Firepink, Green and Gold, Wood Asters, Indigos, and Glade Savory.
