Amsonia hubrichtii, commonly known as threadleaf bluestar, is a graceful perennial prized for its wispy, thread-like foliage that turns golden-yellow in the fall, accompanied by clusters of light blue star-shaped flowers in late spring. This deer-resistant plant is perfect for adding texture and color to sunny borders, cottage gardens, or naturalized areas. It thrives in full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil, attracting pollinators while providing long-lasting interest in the garden.
