This introduction is long-blooming and compact in habit. It forms a low mound of green willow-like leaves, bearing clusters of dark-blue buds that open into starry soft-blue flowers in early summer and last for several weeks. Plants are long-lived, idea for massing or growing near the front of the sunny border. Leaves turn buttery gold in the autumn. Easy and carefree. Flower colour is the deepest shade of blue yet found in any Amsonia species or selection. Discovered in a seedling block of Amsonia tabernaemontana at White Flower Farms, but suspected to be a hybrid.
