Threadleaf bluestar, also called Hubricht's or Arkansas bluestar - is showy, but still underused perennial. Fine-texture, strong clumps, very narrow needle-like leaves 3 to 4 inches and with the "shrubby"look.
Threadleaf bluestar grows usually grows to 3 feet tall and wide. Flowers are a medium dark steel blue in late spring, extraordinary fall color reaches golden-yellow to orange-yellow.
Grows well in full sun to half shade, in average to drier soils, organic, sandy or clay soils too. It will flop in shade, plus the more sun it gets, the better the fall color is. Hardiness zones 4-9.
Very attractive, dependable and long lived perennial, that attracts butterflies. Deer proof and black walnut and drought resistant plant. Easy to grow, even a little bit slower in first couple of years. Well adapted to summer heat and humidity. Best planted in groups or masses, but can be used as a single shrub too.
Excellent plant for any sunny landscaping, rain gardens, borders, cottage gardens, woodland edges and butterfly gardens.
It is named after it's discoverer Leslie Hubricht, who first discovered it growing in the wild in the early 1940s. Plant origin - South-central United States.

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.
