Amsonia tabernaemontana var. salicifolia – Willowleaf Bluestar – 1.25-Quart


A long-lived, deer-resistant perennial with a tough disposition, blemish-free foliage throughout the year, and forget-me-not blue flowers that are an important nectar source for early spring butterflies. Give it some room – a single plant will eventually grow to at least 3’ high and wide. Foliage turns a golden color in fall – it’s one of the few perennials that has attractive fall foliage. This variety of Common Bluestar has narrow foliage reminiscent of willow leaves.
