This unusual plant caught my eye in early May at the Enabling Garden, because its branches curl almost like a fern frond unfurling. The pale blue star flowers were not very showy at first. By the end of May the entire plant is now covered in almost white flowers. It pairs perfectly with the silvery, white immortality iris and purple catmint.
An even better display will come this fall when the leaves of the Arkansas blue star turn a vivid golden orange color.
Updated photos will be posted in the fall for those who can’t make it to the garden to see it in person.
