Perennial of the Year: Arkansas Blue Star!

The Perennial Plant Association has announced the "Perennial of the Year", which is surely the Miss America contest for perennials!  The winner is Amosonia hubrichitii or Arkansas Blue Star.  It's a North American native, thrives in full sun to part shade, is drought resistant once established, disliked by deer and loved by bees and butterflies and can probably bring about world peace!!  What's not to love.  Can't wait to plant several in my garden.  Read about it here.
