|Newly emerging 3rd-year plant, late April |
Only amsonia species native to China. It looks similar to A. tabernaemontana in leaf and in flower, but perhaps with a more stoutly upright habit and more sparsely arranged flowers. It took a few years for our plants to start blooming after starting them from seed.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
