Amsonia

Amsonia x ‘Blue Ice’ full sun  new plant

Springing forth in a seedling block of A. tabernaemontana at Sunny Border Nursery, this energetic compact perennial has an unresolved lineage, with some speculating that either A. montana or A. orientalis may be a parent. What’s for certain is the fact that its flowers are the bluest, most vibrant and longest blooming ones amongst the genus. The pyramidal-shaped terminal clusters of navy-colored buds and starry lavender-blue blooms garnish a refined dense mound clothed in narrow, willow-like dark green leaves. ‘Blue Ice’s easily maintained habit beams brilliant yellow fall color, looks its best when massed and makes a spiffy deer-proof addition to rock work, borders or woodland peripheries.

Blooms May–June

Size: 12"–18" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Amsonia x ‘Blue Ice’ (P-1969)

Customer Comment:

“Ordered a selection of plants from Digging Dog earlier this year: campanula, ajuga, columbine, etc. All looked great, with healthy root systems. They've all settled in well and are thriving. I will order from them again.”
