2009 Great Plants Perennial of the Year and the Perennial Plant Association of the Year for 2011! This U.S. native offers a long season of interest, with its blue spring into early summer flowers, attractive feathery leaves, and golden yellow autumn color. At almost 3 feet tall, it adds interest if planted in and amongst ornamental grasses and small shrubs. Not the most stunning plant its first year, but with patience you will be rewarded! This is a great addition to the cottage or meadow garden. This easy keeper prefers well-drained soils and is deer resistant!

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
