As the name suggests, this plant originates from the area around Arkansas where it's found in well-drained creek banks and surrounding lowlands. This variety has very narrow, needle-like leaves that stick out from the stems like a bottle brush. The distictive foliage creates a fine textured, billowing feel that forms a dense mass, similar to a small shrub. In early summer star-like, steel-blue flowers about 1cm across appear and are great for adding cool colour to a border. Long after the flowers have faded in autumn the foliage turns rich buttery shades before the plant dies back for its winter hybernation.Garden care: This plant does not like wet soil, especially during the winter, so make sure it is planted in a freely draining soil.
