It would help to know what climate the bush is growing in. Are you in Florida? Alaska? It does make a difference:) Are the flowers fragrant? You can add this information to your profile (see Llcenter's profile above, and mine here).

Hi Beverly. I updated my profile per your suggestion. I live in New Haven, CT which is on the north coast of Long Island sound: Zone 7a. Thanks!

Yes, Junebug is correct. It's a Blue Dogbane or Bluestar (Amsonia sp.). It reminds me of Amsonia tabernaemonta ssp. salicifolia, though there are other similar species.
