No, this plant is not named after David Letterman! The fine textured foliage, similar to Amsonia hubrichtii, provides mop-headed interest from spring through fall. The star-like purple flowers bloom in late summer and will attract lots of butterflies to your garden.

Grow in full sun in average to dry soils with good drainage.

Combine with one of the many coneflower cultivars and Joe Pye Weed for a great late summer show. Because of the fine textured foliage, it looks best planted in groups.
