For Spectacular flowers, These 2 Bluestars Stand Out
Named for their pale blue, star-shaped flowers, bluestars are easy to grow perennial plants. There are about 22 species of bluestar world-wide, but 2 North American species are most commonly available in nurseries. The bluestars differ mainly in their leaf shape. Hubricht's bluestar (shown) has very narrow leaves giving it a feathery appearance. Eastern bluestar leaves look like willow leaves. Bluestars may also be called by their Latin name, Amsonia.
