Plant Description

Threadleaf bluestar, sometimes also called Hubricht's or Arkansas bluestar, makes a showy, fluffy, fine-textured clumping plant.  It has very narrow needle-like leaves 3 to 4 inches long and only a matchstick in width giving a fine and brushy look. Threadleaf bluestar  grows 3 to 4 feet tall, and the flowers are a medium dark steel blue in late spring. It prefers a dryish site. Fall color is a good deep gold before the plants die back for the winter. Bluestars are very attractive and dependable. Plus, they are deer proof.
