This U.S. native, very low maintenance perennial has beautiful star shaped clusters of powdery blue flowers that attract butterflies. It stays below 3 feet high and 3 feet wide. It is resistant to deer browsing, prefers average well-drained soil and blooms between April and May. Though tolerant of part shade, it prefers full sun — a placement that results in bright yellow and orange fall color.
