Thread-leaf Blue Star

Amsonia hubrichtii



Amsonia hubrichtii full sun

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.
