Thread-leaf Blue Star
Too long ignored, this hard-to-find perennial
adds pleasing texture to the border and delicacy to a
bouquet. In early summer, bushy clumps of elegant,
upright stems are crowned with steel blue buds
and starry gray-blue flowers held in graceful umbels.
We are especially captivated by the willowy
needlelike leaves, which eventually burnish to a brilliant
gold, and together with the persistent chocolate-hued
seed heads, bestow a rich autumn show. A southwestern U.S. native, Blue Star is undemanding and long-lived in any garden soil.
Size: 2' 0"–3' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
Amsonia hubrichtii (P-0916)
