Details

Adaptable to most garden situations, this tough native requires little maintenance. Pale blue star shaped flowers appear in spring to early summer forming very floriferous, dense flower clusters. Shiny, willow shaped green leaves turn to a lovely shade of yellow in the fall. Similar in appearance to Amsosnia tabernaemontana except the leaves are thicker, shinier and more leathery and the seed pods are pendant instead of upright.
