Amsonia ‘Blue Ice’ Plants
Amsonia ‘Blue Ice’ is an impressive plant, requires little care, is deer resistant and can handle drought. Did we mention that it is also a NATIVE?
This impressive Amsoniais shorter and more compact than ‘Blue Star’ with 2′ wide mounds of narrow, dark green foliage that erupts with large clusters of rich, dark lavender-blue flowers. The foliage turns a lovely golden yellow for fall interest. We love this plant for its year round interest ~ gorgeous blooms in the spring into summer and slowly turning to warm golden hues for the fall. A perfect landscape plant.
Briscoe’s Tips For Amsonia ‘tabernaemontana’
Soil: Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil
Use: This majestic landscape plants are very adaptable, but you need to give them enough sun so that they will not topple ~ too much shade causes them to sprawl and flop over. Give them rich, organic soil and a nice layer of mulch. The clumps can be divided, but you have several years of uninterrupted growth before you’ll need to divide them.
