I'm glad to see this as it is a delightful plant. I'm surprised that you did not mention the wonderful yellow colour the foliage turns in the Fall. One of my favourites due to multi-season interest. And one of the last to emerge from the ground in the spring. I'd recommend putting in a reminder marker so you don't accidentally uproot it.

A few years ago, I stumbled across this Amsonia plant at a local garden center during their end of season perennial sale. This then foot tall plant with its many vibrant ostrich-like plumes gently swaying on a breezy mid-August afternoon and in a one gallon pot minus any sign of a floral display or tag indentifing its name, care, or planting instructions more than caught my eye. It’s gracefulness simply beckoned me to take it home. Somehow, I knew it’s deep green plumes would be perfect in the rear part of my flower garden. Now, three years later it’s grown into a circular lush display of greenery that produces an abundance of periwinkle colored softball size, snowflake-like blooms early every summer. My Amsonia is an eye catching plant and often becomes a conversion starter with those who pass by flower gardens., New York, United States, 38 weeks ago
