Amsonia Blue Ice is a lovely new Blue Star selection. The multi-season interest begins with a neat green-leaved form that sprouts blue flowers before ending with yellow fall foliage. Blue Ice is more dynamic in all aspects. Dark blue buds open to sky blue flowers with hints of lavender. The season will end with glowing yellow leaves on an 18" plant. Blue Stars will never be the same!
