A stunningly beautiful upright clump-forming species ideal for garden settings, with gorgeous clusters of sky-blue star-shaped flowers from April to June. Seedpods are long and slender. Leaves are quite thin, seeming to whorl around the stems, creating a lovely fine-textured effect, especially in the fall when the foliage turns bright gold. Tolerates drought, sandy soil, rocky soil, and clay, and generally prefers well-drained conditions. Attracts butterflies and pollinators. Really an exceptionally beautiful wildflower with few pests or problems. Stems may flop if grown in too much shade, but can be staked or cut back to encourage bushiness after blooming. Looks best grown in masses, and makes a great plant for meadows, edges and borders, cottage gardens, pollinator gardens, and even rock gardens. Most frequently found growing in somewhat sandy conditions in the wild.
Native Range: NC south to FL and west to AL, also MO south to TX and west to OK. Rare in MO
