Amsonia ‘Blue Ice’

Native hybrid: This dwarf member of the Blue Star clan has attractive, tidy foliage and deeper blue blossoms in late spring or early summer.  ‘Blue Ice’ has a desirable compact, mounding growth habit and blue-ish foliage.  When not in bloom the foliage is attractive and tidy with golden yellow fall color. It can be used as a pollinator plant and groundcover, and looks best in a grouping.

Eastern blue star can provide excellent habitat for beneficial fauna. The flowers provide an important nectar source and the foliage is a larval food for various butterflies. Hummingbirds, carpenter bees, hummingbird moths, and several other pollinators are also drawn to the plant. As an additional bonus, deer avoid it!
