Hubricht's bluestar, Amsonia hubrichtii

Hubrict's bluestar is an uncommon plant with a very limited range that's now pretty easy to see. I remember reading an item a long time ago about someone who travelled around finding new plants for the nursery business. This bluestar seems to be one of the results. It was unknown to science until 1943. It occurs in nature only in Arkansas and Oklahoma. Now it's fairly common in gardens. Hidden Lake Gardens, Lenawee Co MI, 6/2/15.
