Pale blue, star shaped flowers bloom on top of tall, willowy stems soon after they start emerging from the ground. Leaves turn golden yellow in the fall, which can make a striking effect if planted in groupings. Grows in a tidy, clump forming habit in full sun, but can also be grown in part sun to light shade. Can be pruned by ⅓ after flowering to keep a bushier form. A no fuss plant once established, although it typically takes a couple of years to really turn out.
