Amsonia ‘Storm Cloud’ before and after

In 2016, we introduced Amsonia ‘Storm Cloud‘ in conjunction with our friend Hans Hansen of Walters Gardens. Above is the same plant when we discovered by a stream, growing in deep shade in Central Alabama. What a star it has become, evidenced by the photo below.

  1. Is this ok in deep shade (wet)?
    The culture says “Sun to Part Sun”; but the description says that this plant was found in “wet, deep shade.”

  2. I love the look of this. How do you think it would grow in North Texas (Southern Plains) in black clay, somewhat amended? I have an irrigation system that is used if we go two weeks without rain.
