Arkansas Blue Star is a STAR!

I bought ten of these a couple of years ago to plant by a wall surrounding a pool and they have performed beautifully where I planted them. They require very little of me, yet look just beautiful.

Amateur Review
Jay E Baldwin from GA wrote on April 19, 2017

This was my first ever online plant purchase. The whole idea of mail order shrubs is whacky to me. I'm probably the least qualified to comment. Let's call this a common sense review. I ordered six Blue Stars. They arrived four days after shipping, bare root and packaged in snug little bundles of straw. The instructions are clear: don't unwrap the bundles until you're ready to plant. Keep them moist. I wetted the box they were shipped in and put it all in the shade. The next day I unwrapped each bundle and put the plants in a bucket of water per the instructions for about 8 hours while I was at work. Roots looked great, tiny plants looked healthy, I planted them. It was that easy. This'll be their first growing season. I'll see how they do. For their part, Wayside was great. Price, service, quality all good, I hope my gardening skills are as good.

Magnificent

The Amsonia can be late to put out new growth in the spring. For a minute there, I was thinking mine might be a goner. It can also take a little time to mature but once it does it is truly a magnificent plant. Such a pleasure enjoying the airy foliage in the summer breeze!

Amazing shrub that is beautiful from spring thru fall
Carolyn Pittman from OH wrote on September 30, 2012

though the name is long this shrub is a visual delight. in the spring delicate blue flowers appear, in the summer the foliage is a soft green and in the fall it turns on its spectaular changing color. I get many inquiries about this shrub as very few people have it in their gardens - it is a worthwhile investment. mine is planted near the front porch but give it the room it needs. as the description states, hubrichtii is not invasive.
