Narrow Leaf Blue Star is a tall growing perennial with narrow
grass like foliage and Lily like stems. Early to mid spring this
easy to grow plant produces clusters of star shaped light blue
flowers, hence its common name.
Plant Narrow Leaf Blue Star in full sun to light shade, in moist fertile
well drained soils. It tolerates poor soils and short periods of drought
very well. When planted in full sun Narrow Leaf Blue Star's
foliage will turn bright gold come fall.
Propagation: Narrow Leaf Blue Star seeds can be sown in a cold frame in
early spring, then planted outdoors after danger of frost has
passed. For quicker growth purchase pre-started Amsonia plants
from your local Garden Center. Plant in groups of two or three
plants with each group being spaced 30" to 40" apart.
