Amsonia hubrichtii

Amsonia hubrichtii

Arkansas Amsonia

The delicate light blue flowers of Arkansas Amsonia appear in May. It also has stunning orange and yellow fall foliage. A true tough multi-season plant plus Amsonia hubrichtii produces a latex-like sap that deer tend to avoid. This low maintenance native perennial is a slow grower; it may take 1 to 2 years before it's true beauty is revealed.  A showstopper when planted in mass.  Full sun and moist, well-drained soils create the best fall color; however, it will grow in a range of light and soil moisture conditions.  Native to the Ouachita Mountains in central Arkansas, where it was discovered in the early 1940's by Leslie Hubricht. 2011 Perennial Plant of the Year, and Dr. JC Raulston's favorite perennial.
