Amsonia tabernaemontana is a compact, erect, clump forming plant with clusters of pale blue star-like flowers. It prefers well-drained, average soil in full sun to part shade. When grown in full sun, it usually will not require pruning or staking. However, when grown in some shade or richer soils, it will tend to become more floppy. Does best when massed and naturalized in areas such as woodlands or native plant gardens.
