Amsonia Blue Ice (Blue Star)

Amsonia Blue Ice (Blue Star)

When you have a small space that deserves some love and attention, consider Blue Ice Amsonia, the compact plant with big-time wow factor! An improved amsonia variety that charms in a darker, richer shade of blue, it draws attention to full sun or part shade borders, rock gardens and containers. Plus, thanks to Blue Ice's tidy form and moderate height, no staking necessary to keep the plants upright and visible in the garden or landscape. Carefree with little maintenance required, there is no need to cut the stems back after flowering. Erect, clump-forming plants are hardy and drought tolerant, too. #1 plants.
