I know they look dead on top. but check out those white roots. And if you stuck your finger down the stem in to the soil you would feel the point of a shoot just waiting for your warmth. These Amsonia take around 4 to 6 weeks for a quart and about 6 to 8 weeks for a small gallon. Those times are for rooting out well into the soil.



Amsonia tabernaemontana ‘blue ice’ or blue star is a pleasant 12 to 15 inch high periwinkle-blue perennial. lush green foliage that turns bronze in the fall.  hardy to zones 5-9 the flowers are true blue in may and june.


Amsonia hubrectii is a full 26 to 48 inch tall beauty. Thread like green foliage is green through spring and summer and turns a glowing bronze in the fall. This is native to our prairies.

Both Amsonia are hardy and a pleasant addition to your garden. the dazzling blue flowers in spring are wonderful but the bronze foliage in the fall gives this plant a real must have element.

You can see our cells are dormant and ready for your warming touch to be ready for spring sales. 72s and 21s is how we grow them. Don’t forget to order tags…….
