Bluestar Interesting Notes

Amsonia 'Blue Ice' is an amazing selection of blue star that was discovered in a seedling block of Amsonia tabernaemontana at Connecticut's Sunny Border Nursery by Michael Dodge, then of White Flower Farm. (We suspect it is actually a hybrid with Amsonia montana or Amsonia orientalis but a paternity test is still pending.) Regardless of its origin, the 2' wide mound of narrow, dark green, deer-resistant foliage is topped in early spring with large clusters of very dark lavender-blue flowers...much more vivid than other blue stars. - Plant Delights
