Description

Ozark Bluestar is also know as Shining Bluestar, Showy Bluestar, Missouri Bluestar, and Swamp Bluestar. It features prolific clusters of star-like periwinkle blossoms, often bunched so tightly together that they appear as a much larger looking bloom. The blooms appear early in the season, and provide nectar for many butterflies and bees before most other food sources are available. In the fall the foliage turns a stunning golden hue, often keeping its leaves and color well past the first frost. Amsonia illustris is very tolerant of sun or shade, and tolerant of most soil conditions including gravel or clay. A USA native plant.

Height: 90cm, 36"

Hardiness zones
: 5-9


Location
: Sun or shade

Note: Ornamental use only. These seeds and/or plants may be poisonous.

Seeds per pack: 10

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. Germination is in 14-60 days after the warming period. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
