A plant worth discovering.
Amsonia hubrichtii is native to the states of Arkansas and Oklahoma and is a vigorous plant which needs little maintenance. It provides ornamental interest throughout the growing season.
Light blue, slightly turquoise star-shaped flowers from May onwards.
As the plant dries back the foliage remains attractive and looks somewhat like asparagus, or Cypress Spurge (Euphorbia cyparissias). The textural effect lasts into the autumn when the leaves turn a bright yellow.
Isolated or in mass, Amsonia hubrichtii is very effective and especially so in the autumn.
Cultivation: in the sun in ordinary, well-drained soil. Study, slow-growing plant.
