This US native can be found along streambanks from Missouri south to Texas. The 3' tall stems clothed with glossy green deer-resistant leaves resemble Amsonia tabernaemontana except for the glossy leaves. In early spring, the clumps are topped with terminal clusters of light sky-blue flowers...a very tough and long-lived perennial. These seed grown plants are from a population in St. Louis County, Missouri.
