    maybe Amsonia, although not sure on species.
    There are ashtrays of emulsion,

    I second punkdoc is an amsonia.  I noticed lots at Wisley in the glasshouse borders.  Tempted to try some here as rumour has it they are deer proof ......and you get a good yellow autumn colour with the leaves

    I have this!  I planted it last year and it is just about to come into flower.

    I love it. I gave it the 'three strikes' test in my limey clay. It failed and died each time. One day...

    I have seeds, not yet sown, so if you can't find the plant, maybe you too can find seeds.
