Amsonia are low maintenance mid-western and southern natives that are easy to grow and unbothered by pests or insects. Plants are fairly drought tolerant once established. Exceptional fall foliage color extends the appeal. Adapts to most conditions. Becomes leggy in too much shade. Optimum effect when massed.
Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho
at this time.
Easy to grow, best in a moist, fertile soil. Can tolerate wet soils for short periods. Shear back by one third after flowering to maintain a more compact plant. Snap off mature seed pods to prevent over seeding. Bluestars will readily cross pollinate with other Amsonia nearby. Clumps can be divided in spring but this is generally not needed for 6 years or more.
Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!
We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
We use custom, earth-friendly packaging to make sure your order arrives in great condition, and we ship based on the best planting time for your growing zone (see the approximate dates below), unless otherwise indicated at checkout. If you wish, you can indicate a specific ship date during checkout.
