This neat native has a similar look to Amsonia hubrichtii. It has thin foliage, a vase-like habit, and an airy dome of small purple flowers. The flowers bloom in late summer extending its beauty. It sort of looks like a cross between Baby's Breath and a purple Aster; mixes well with grasses and other late summer bloomers.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in at least 6 hours of full sun, if possible. Prefers soil that is well draining, but is otherwise not fussy about soil type. May re-seed, so deadhead if this is not desired. Foliage holds up well in winter; cut to the ground in early spring.
