Amsonia tabernaemontana 'Starstruck'


Amsonia 'Starstruck' displays star-like periwinkle blue flowers above silver veined foliage on dramatic near-black stems.

Amsonia tabernaemontana 'Starstruck' is an exciting variety of blue star with new stems that emerge near-black with leaves that are very dark green with silver veins. The stems stay dark throughout the spring to hold the masses of light periwinkle blue, star-shaped flowers. Though the main bloom is in late spring, 'Starstruck' can rebloom later in the season.
