Plant Features

Blue Ice Amsonia Plants produce blue, star-shaped flowers that bloom stronger and longer than other varieties. The narrow, willow-shaped, dark green foliage turns a wonderful bright yellow in fall just when the garden needs a splash of color. Bluestar is a tough, easy to grow perennial plants that grow in soils that drain well. Established plants can offer short periods of drought relief. Amsonia attracts early season butterflies; deer and rabbits tend to avoid it.

Great perennial! Love the little blue flowers. Tolerates the heat well.

Healthy Strong Plant

I'm looking forward to watching this plant bloom and grow. It arrived in great shape and has not missed a beat since planting.

arrived very healthy

Received such healthy-looking plants! Very hot in north NJ now, but plants still look strong and are growing, will buy more Amsonia, thanks.

Healthy plants!

First time trying Amsonia. Both plants are full of foliage and have transplanted really well. Will have to wait till spring for blooms. Happy with them for the time being.

This arrived when I had company - they were impressed with the packaging and the healthy plant. Now to wait for it to grow and bloom. Just the idea of it got a lot of ooh's and ahh's!
