Butterscotch Bluestar. This is a native perennial which has leaves slightly wider than its close relative Amsonia hubrichtii. It will make a clump of 2-3' high and 3-4' across. It is topped with umbels of steel blue flowers in mid spring. The fall color is reputed to be even more brilliant than A. hubrichtii. None the less, the foliage is magnificent. The fine texture will contrast so beautifully with most any other perennial. Grow it in full sun with good drainage. The picture is courtesy of Emerald Coast Growers.
