Blue Star Characteristics
Blue Star are native to the Midwestern United States and can grow easily in these conditions if located in the correct areas. Varying levels of sunlight can produce different growth with these plants. With more shade, the blue blooms tend to be greater in number and last longer. If given more sun, the bright golden foliage tends to be more vibrant.
If planted in too much shade, it is possible that the stalks that hold the flowers and droop and flop. If this begins to happen, trim the stems after flowering to reduce the overall height. There are no serious diseases or pests that plague these plants, making them a low maintenance and showy option.
Blue Star often attract butterflies but deer are not usually interested. This makes them a prime option for pollinator gardens or wild flower landscapes. Interest is greatest when planted in mass.
