I have grown amsonia for a few years now in clay soil and in partial shade. I did add some grit and homemade compost when planted and its been reliable ever since. The flowers are quite showy even though the blue flowers are almost grey. That doesnt sound very inspiring but I wouldnt be without them now. I also value them enhancing my display of aquilegia and dark geraniums. Lovely combo
