This compact, very long and heavy-blooming Amsonia is simply the best variety yet for your garden. The flowers are a dark, brilliant blue, covering the plant from spring through early summer with very long-lasting color. And after the blooms pass and summer turns to fall, the foliage turns a rich shade of yellow and remains colorful for weeks. Selected from A. tabernaemontana, 'Blue Ice' is far stronger and more compact than the species. Expect it to reach just 15 in. high and 2 ft. wide, with 3/4 in. star-shaped blooms arising from the first warm weather of spring all the way into summer. Once established in your garden, this plant is quite drought-resistant and low-maintenance as well. Treat yourself to some one-of-a-kind color over three seasons with 'Blue Ice'.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very healthy! I received this beautiful plant very quickly and it had brown sticks coming out of it. It didn't bother me because I had read other reviews about plants looking not too great and then doing well. I was right! Right away green sprouts started coming up and within 2 weeks I have beautiful purple flowers! Home Depot is the best!! May 8, 2011
