A compact perennial from East Asia, Amsonia elliptica is a delightful change of pace from other blue stars, most of which are large and from North America (not that they aren't delightful too!). Its leaves are also relatively broad, lending a fuller, bolder effect that nicely complements the pale blue starflowers. Outstanding and rare, like many things you'll find here!
