Amsonia x 'Starstruck' is a hybrid Amsonia cultivar noted for its more compact, mound-forming habit and its more vivid blue flowers than other Amsonia varieties. Typically reaching only 20" in height, this cultivar's compact but upright nature makes it a good pick for border plantings and small areas, but size isn't everything. With the typical star-shaped flowers of other Amsonia but in a deeper shade of blue, you're sure to be 'Starstruck' in the spring and summer, as this cultivar attracts butterflies and pollinators to a variety of small garden spaces.

'Starstruck' thrives in full sun or part-shade, but prefers moist, average soils with some loam content, and different light levels can affect the plant's flowering habits or foliage colors; direct sunlight will produce the most vibrant fall colors, as 'Starstruck' foliage turns a vibrant golden-yellow in the autumn. However, flowers may last longer and perform better in locations with some afternoon shade; all that said, wherever you choose to plant your Amsonia x 'Starstruck,' it will be a show stopper in the garden.
