Threadleaf bluestar, also called Hubricht's or Arkansas bluestar, is a showy but underused perennial. It forms strong clumps that are finely textured, having very narrow needle-like leaves (3 - 4" long) and an overall "shrubby" look. The flowers are a medium-dark steel blue in late spring, and its extraordinary fall color reaches golden-yellow to orange-yellow. It will flop in shade, plus the more sun it gets, the better the fall color is. 

Very attractive, dependable and long-lived perennial. Black walnut and drought resistant plant. Easy to grow, although the growth is a bit slow in first couple of years. Well adapted to summer heat and humidity.

Best planted in groups or masses, but it can be used as a single shrub too. Excellent plant for sunny landscaping projects, rain gardens, borders, cottage gardens, woodland edges and butterfly gardens.

It is named after its discoverer, Leslie Hubricht, who first discovered it growing in the wild in the early 1940s.

    AMSONIA HUBRICHTII - THREAD LEAVED BLUESTAR (ARKANSAS AMSONIA)

    Posted by Brad pressley on 25th Nov 2020

    These plants are so healthy and strong. The highest quality of plants I've ordered yet. These aren't tiny, they're well established. Ordered in Autumn so I could already see the beautiful change in color of this plant. Can't wait to report back in Spring.
