The perennial Starstruck Amsonia will bring native pollinators around to your garden beginning in spring. The little rounded plant fills with star-shaped flowers in periwinkle blue that rise above narrow green leaves. This easy-care plant can fill your garden with flowers and the insects that love them when you plant several as a mass planting (and pretty blue color explosion). Amsonia is cold hardy to zone 4 but can tolerate heat all the way up to zone 9, so it is a versatile choice in many growing regions. Deer avoid amsonia, so that is another reason to add it to your landscape. In fact, add several to form a border around your garden bed, before taller plants.
