Blue Star, a stunning wildflower native to the United States, most often grows naturally in rocky or sandy soil near lakes and streams. Its Latin name, Amsonia, honors a mid 1700s resident of Gloucester, Virginia named Charles Amson who became known as a physician, scientist, and traveler. Once established, Blue Star requires little care and flourishes year after year. Part of this plant's attraction is the fact that it looks beautiful all season long, from its early spring bloom to its golden fall foliage; butterflies and bees flock to this plant.
