Thanks for the great article and pictures! I have been interested in putting bluestars in my garden for some time now, and there is not as much information out there on them as on other perennials. Particularly liked the photos!

I planted 6 a. hubrichtii this year and they're doing well. I so look forward to the yellow coloring in the fall. Mine are plantedd inground, bright shade.

Wow. Colour me Stoopid. I have never heard of this plant or ever seen one for that matter. Perhaps it is because I live in Canada but I suspect it is more likely that I just haven't experienced it because I live in a small, rather rural village with a population of 1,300 people. My garden is one of the biggest in the village.

Thanks for the great article and the useful knowledge I gleaned from the diversity of so many kinds of amsonias. I am going to bookmark this article and add it to the knowledge I keep accumulating from DG. I think it would fit right in with my English Cottage Garden. Thanks again.

I too share your love of Amsonia. Here in Alabama we have several species but it's just by serendipity that I finally found a good place to plant my latest acquisition (A. tabernamontana). I told my wife I wanted to see this one grow so I planted it by by carport and it has rewarded me with about 25 stems flowering this year. Not my first one but by far my best one.
